Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shalini Murthy
Water is by far the most abundant and valuable liquid on earth. Not only do all plants and animals need water to live and grow; it is also home to many living things. In this fact-filled book, Collard explores thirteen different acquatic eco-systems from gentle streams and mighty rivers to the rich continental shelf. In an age where environmental issues are in the forefront of public debate, this book with its lucid explanations about the value of the acquatic eco-systems is a worthy read. A glossary at the end of the book provides useful explanations of key terms. The illustrations are realistic and support the text nicely.
