Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What a terrific book for elementary age kids about the topic of water. The reader will learn the basics of water and its vital importance for sustaining human life. The author describes a myriad of water topics—its cycle, uses, altering states and types, where it is found and how modern technology channels clean water. Readers learn about environmental concerns associated with water and are cautioned to indeed use this precious commodity wisely. The book contains interesting water facts, a glossary, an index and a resource page for those eager to continue their water education. Readers will love this picture-filled book that helps visual learners. Preschool teachers might try this book for a science theme at the pre-kindergarten level while older age children might enjoy this for pleasure reading. Teachers might find this a great book for students to use for a book report assignment. The audience can be varied and even adults might find themselves thinking twice about their own water use. Part of the "Simply Science" series. 2001, Compass Point Books, $19.93. Ages 7 to 10. Reviewer: Melinda Tierney
