The book is historical fiction, so you could provide some background on the Amazon. Pictures would be very helpful. You can look at tourist web sites. I would also suggest having students make their own fictional diaries, describing how they would act in Maia’s place.
I love the book Journey to the river sea because it is a book of adventure and the author gives many redherrings. I also like this book because it is a very interesting book because it shows how Maia is imagining all the things that the amazon is going to be like and how her two new sisters are going to be like and then when she actually gets there she loves the senery but she really dislikes her new sisters, Beatrice and Gwendolyn. I think that Eva Ibbotson is a great author because she makes her stories magical and exciting. And those are the kind of books that I read.
