Overview

Water is always flowing, from a brook to a stream, to a river to the ocean. Read and find out more about how water shapes the earth and why it is important to keep our water clean in this fascinating book from author-illustrator Arthur Dorros. This book clearly explains terms like "brook," "stream," "river," and "delta," and the full-color illustrations show where water comes from, how it travels, and where it goes.

This is a Stage 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades. Let's-Read-And-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 4-- An excellent presentation of introductory material about water. Addressing readers in the second-person ``you,'' it clearly explains such terms as ``brook,'' ``stream,'' ``river,'' and ``delta,'' and illustrates such basic concepts as where water comes from, how it travels, and where it goes. The illustrations are simple, almost childlike, in soft colors. In a few cases, however, it is difficult to distinguish between water and land because the contrast in tone is subtle; otherwise, the artwork is pleasant and effective. Comparable titles include From Ice to Rain (Carolrhoda, 1981) by Marlene Reidel and Diane Tippell's Water (Silver Burdett, 1986). --Rosie Peasley, Somerset School, Modesto, CA
