7: Book Pick: The River of No Return by Craig Vroom.
My Book Picks are for older students. The River of No Return is a perfect chapter book for 3rd grade and up.
The River flows past granite walls,
Past sandy banks and over falls,
It swirls about and fairly dances.
We climb aboard and take our chances.
