This uniquely titled book introduces the water cycle. The information includes details about why plants and animals need water; the three states of water; how it moves through streams, rivers, and the ocean; and what happens to it after evaporation. How water is used on Earth and conservation issues are also discussed. The lack of chapters might hinder the use of this book for reports. The colorful, cartoon illustrations result in a comic-book look, and the hand-lettered text adds to this feeling. Many books have been written about the water cycle, and this one is similar in style to Joanna Cole's Magic School Bus: Wet All Over (Scholastic, 1996).
