Lakes and ponds are standing bodies of water while rivers and streams are distinguished by a fast-moving current. While there appear to be clear distinctions, the differences become subtle in regions where rivers widen and current slows such that the river could be considered a lake or a pond.

Large catastrophic outflow channels were carved by overland flows released from either large upland surface impoundments or from subsurface storage. Other overland flows and sapping channels were sustained by subsurface discharge from springs and seeps.

Let's begin with the different forms of flowing water. The smallest water channels are often called brooks, and you can generally step across a brook. Creeks are often larger than brooks but may either be permanent or intermittent

Each title in this series introduces a different body of water to young readers. Simple text and beautiful photography are used to compare and contrast the characteristics of each.
