Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patricia Timbrook
The worldwide guide is a raindrop, whose face resembles the serious "man-in-the-moon" image. This cycle-teaching picture book, rhymed in an a-a, b-b pattern, allows the reader to follow one raindrop to interesting global places and peoples. The twenty-two pages of illustrations repeat the raindrop shapes within their compositions; and the four pages of information about water at the book's end are a plus to the story's text.

Meet the Author

Barbara Shaw McKinney is a teacher as well as a poet. She was inspired to use the magic of children's literature to spark her students' curiosity about the wonders of water. She vowed to "turn a drop of rain into a drop of life, astounding children by its eternity." Her sprightly verse elicits a "water wow!" in A Drop Around the World, her first book. She is also the author of Pass the Energy Please!, a wonderful exploration of nature's food chain, written in rhyming verse. From Manchester, Connecticut, McKinney draws on her experience as a mother, musician, and curriculum developer to promote quality education through workshops for teachers.
