Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
The reader dives right into how the two hydrogen and single oxygen molecules create one of the most used compounds on earth: water. Water can be a liquid, a gas, and even a solid. On page seventeen, a young reader reviews how the water cycle starts in a lake and ends back in a lake. Next they learn more about how water turns into a variety of weather including snow, fog, and ice. How many times of the day do we drink from a faucet or water cooler? The water must go through a water treatment plant where it gets filtered and treated with a limited amount of chlorine. Check out the diagram on page twenty-three to learn more about this process. Why do we drink water? Seventy per cent of our body consists of water and it needs to be replenished consistently. What happens to all of us if we continue to overuse water and not take care of it? The author, Anna Claybourne, takes a familiar subject and includes some unique facts with other more well known ones. Readers will find the more fascinating facts in the purple boxes throughout the book. Photographs from around the world show the importance of water to all of us. Simple diagrams help break down many of the more complicated processes involving water. The glossary, index, and the "find out more" section in the back of the book assist the young reader in further exploration. This book is part of the "The Science of States of Matter" series.
