Learn about the great Rivers of the World with iMindsJNR audio learning series for younger minds.
Can you guess which is the world’s longest river? According to most scientists, it is the Nile, which passes through several African countries, and is 6,695 kilometers long. Some scientists have recently argued that the Amazon in South America is in fact longer. It all depends on where you start your measurements!
A river is a naturally-formed body of moving water that flows overland. Rivers always flow downhill. They usually begin in mountains or hills and end where they meet the ocean, a lake, a desert basin or another river. There are thousands of rivers throughout the world, but not all are “great”.

Informative and Interesting
Listed under books for children, but I'd say it is good for kids and adults alike, this short listen gives us the geography and history of the greatest rivers of the world. I disagree with the notion that the earth has been around for millions of years, instead adhering to the biblical account of creation by a loving God. However, the remainder of the content is of importance and makes for a fun listen.

nicely narrated with interesting detail about the major rivers of the world. mostly covers longest rivers. touches on how local culture is affected by being in close proximity to a major river

This was a high level. Would have liked a bit more exploration of each river.
