Nick News Adventure. [2004-08-29], Rollin' Down the River: Kids Explore the Amazon
Summary: "NICK NEWS ADVENTURE: ROLLIN' DOWN THE RIVER: KIDS EXPLORE THE AMAZON.

"Nick News, Linda Ellerbee, six kids (and one parent or guardian apiece), along with a nature and conservation guide from the World Wildlife Fund, take a 10-day boat trip down the Amazon and through the rainforest. On the journey, these kids, who come from diverse backgrounds and different parts of the U.S., experience first hand what a rainforest is like, learn more about the plants and animals that live there, and take inland side-trips to see and meet some of the indigenous peoples that live off of the river. They also learn about the treats to the rainforest, why it is so essential to preserve it and what we can do to help."--2004 Peabody Awards entry form
