Summary

You swim in it.
You take a bath in its,
You brush your
teeth with it.
You splash it.
You drink it.
You flush the
toilet with it.
It is 65% of you.

Water,
Where does it
come from?
Where does it go?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 4-6. Quiet, rhymed text featuring a few simple lines per page takes the reader through each step of the water cycle, from ocean to atmosphere, to clouds and rain, to the land, to streams, and back to the ocean. Blending perfectly with the text are the bright, eye-catching illustrations on double-page spreads. The surreal montages of crisp photographs demonstrate the concepts effectively, occasionally using visual jokes. (Some birds, a sea horse, and a Tyrannosaurus rex carry tiny umbrellas; the night sky is filled with golden starfish.) Even details such as the colors of the words in the text are artfully arranged. A subtle, well-crafted introduction for young children to a complex subject. --Todd Morning"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Using the same approach as with her This Is the Sunflower, Schaefer celebrates the earth's waters. "This is the ocean/ blue and vast,/ that holds the rainwater from the past." The accompanying illustration depicts a night sky filled with starfish above a turquoise expanse of ocean. While keeping the vocabulary simple, the author conjures up vivid images of how water continually replenishes the planet by falling, flowing and vaporizing. Water makes "puddles,/ big and round,/ that dot the land, muddy wet ground"; it forms "clouds low and gray,/ full of vapor, moist and light." Wattenberg's full-bleed photo collages, used so effectively in her Henny Penny, here depict stunning natural images: a single sunflower stands sentry-like in a vast, gold-splashed meadow; a school of emerald fish seem to be airborne at the base of a waterfall; a gray cloud oozes over a seashore. And there's a soupcon of sly jokes as well Wattenberg has a fondness for sneaking dinosaurs into her ocean scenes, and the final montage sports umbrella-toting birds and seahorses. Her layer upon layer of photo images creates a giddy visual landscape that is simultaneously ironic and iconic. Ages 4-up. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
