About the Book
Flo, a particularly peculiar pelican, and her younger companion Eddy, a crazy and curious cormorant, fly together on their annual fall migration. While playing around, they’re thrown off course and end up on a mountaintop. Flo gets them back on track by using the natural flow of water as a directional map, travelling downstream from mountain watersheds to the ocean, a journey filled with adventure!
The fresh water takes the pair from mountain glaciers to underground rivers, into glacial lakes and downstream to the waters that flow into the foothills and prairies. They visit irrigation canals and enjoy wetlands filled with marshes, lakes and ponds. The freshwater streams flow all the way to the saltwater ocean, and Flo and Eddy reach their winter destination.
Full of colourful illustrations and environmental information, Flo & Eddy’s Water Adventure is child-, parent- and teacher-friendly introduction to the importance of fresh water to life on earth.
