The Great Lakes:
Our Freshwater Treasure

Follow along as a drop of water in this enormous system and uncover its dramatic journey from lake to rive to lake, over Niagara Falls to lake and river again, and finally into the Atlantic Ocean.

“A million or so years later, the Earth tilted again, and this part of the globe returned closer to the sun. Whoosh! The glacier melted. Its water was trapped in five glacier-dug holes. As the weight of the ice was removed, thawing land rose all around. The Great Lakes were born.”

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by to learn more about my books. I believe that history weaves together all people’s stories and hope to write about the past in a way that engages children, their parents and teachers. Happy reading!
