The Everglades
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Southern Florida is home to the Everglades. The Everglades have been home to the Seminole Indians for centuries. Many Seminoles still live in the Everglades today.
 
2     Water in the Everglades is really a river. Some people call it a slow-moving flood. The river is water from Lake Okeechobee south of Orlando. As the water enters the Everglades, the river grows. It grows to be 40 miles wide and 100 miles long.
 
3     Almost 300 varieties of birds and 600 kinds of fish can be found in the Everglades. There are also 1,000 types of plants.
