The best part about this book is by far the photographs in this photographic essay about water. The photographer captures water splashing, zooms in on what a snowflake looks like, shows condensation as a series, and so many other fascinating things about water. The intended audience for this book is probably older elementary children because it is very scientific. Some of the words may not be understood by younger children, but I think overall both younger and older children would appreciate the wonders presented in this book. I never really thought about water in this way. I think this book is a photographic essay because the photographs are incredible, and it explains the processes of water.

This is a wonderful book. It tells you about everything from water surface tension, to how heat and cold affect water. We all know the basics, but this has beautiful pictures and great simple experiments that really show you how water behaves.

This book contains information about all the different properties of water and the different stages that it can go through. This book would be great for all elementary grades because of the information it contains. I gave it 5 out of 5 because I loved how it broke the information up into different parts and would allow a teacher to have the children follow along.

The most spectacular photographs ever created on the subject of water appear in this unique science book by Walter Wick. The camera stops the action and magnifies it so that all the amazing states of water can be observed - water as ice, rainbow, stream, frost, dew.

An incredible book about water. Wick has produced a beautiful non-fiction picture book that delights and educates us about the properties of water. Older students will "get" it. It will enhance their current understanding. Younger students will get a beautiful introduction on the subject.

A wonderfully photographed book on the subject of water. Stop photography is used to show water in its many states and transformations. There are experiments and examples shown that can be recreated by a budding scientist. This book is easy to read and great to look at.

Part of this book is in the reading curriculum that my district uses. I have never read the entire story. This is a great book, again, packed with lots of vocabulary and great information for readers. I love the pictures. I would use this book as a supplement to my States of Matter unit. This book discusses all of the vocabulary that I discuss.
