Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Stunning photographs depict the cycle of water through our earth-from vapor to rain to steam. Our dependence on water is explained, as is our responsibility to conserve water. The toll of pollution is shown and contrasted with the joy we experience playing in cool clean water.
Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
The fascination in this book will not be the fact that it was a Reading Rainbow selection or the way it teaches the essential qualities of water. It is in every vivid photograph; awesome in detail from the dewdrops beading on a leaf, to the polar bears frolicking in icy waters. Water-in all its natural forms-is pictured, along with the resultant resplendent color that water adds to life.

Read an Excerpt

Earth, the water planet, shines brightly inthe blackness of space. White clouds swirl all around it, over oceans of deepest blue.

Water brings color and life to the earth. Without it, our planet would be dusty, dry, and dead.
