Kid River Books

Does anybody have some recommendations (I saw the Annakayak and will check it out) for books that either kids can read at camp while on a river trip or that the family can read together? The closer to river/outdoors it is the better.
Kids are 9 and 7.

Downriver and River Thunder by Will Hobbs

A River Runs Through It by Norman McLean

"There is NOTHING--absolute nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Look here! If you've really nothing else on hand this morning, supposing we drop down the river together, and have a long day of it?" -Wind in the Willows

Fire Storm by Georgia Craighead Moore, I believe. Its about running the Middle Fork Salmon in the fire season of '02. Short book, maybe for ages 5-10?

White Water by Jonathan London - Pretty good picture book about Desolation Canyon. My 6-yr old loves it. White Water (9780670892860): Jonathan London, Aaron London, Jill Kastner: Books

Also, as I was trying to find a link to this book I searched "Whitewater" on Amazon then filtered to "children's books" and was surprised at the number results.
