School Library Journal

Gr 1–3—This is an appealing, accessible primer on water, its properties, and the importance of conservation. Walter, an endearing warthog, decides to keep a journal of his observations about water, such as the process of evaporation and the attributes of surface tension. Eventually, he is joined in his research by his friend Willa, who has her own pertinent facts to add to Walter's "Wonderful Water Book." The writing, while simple and straightforward, has energy. Wallace's cut-paper artwork in vibrant colors is as adorable as always; its three-dimensional aspect adds a fun novelty to the book's aesthetic. The abundant white space creates a nice crispness. The only complaint is that the terminology and explanations for the characteristics of water that Walter witnesses—capillary action, adhesion, etc.—are at the back of the book rather than on the pages featuring his experiments. Otherwise, the simple tests Walter runs are perfectly presented for young scientists to attempt on their own. Ending with doable suggestions for conserving the water supply, a variety of clear, concise nuggets of information about water, and some kid-friendly jokes, this book has it all as an introduction to this life-giving source.—Alyson Low, Fayetteville Public Library, AR
