A spare, poetic picture book exploring the different phases of the water cycle in surprising and engaging ways.
“Water is all around us, especially this summer, right? So how can an author take something so common that it might be dull and show us the wonder in it? With beautiful watercolor illustrations and simple prose, Water is Water shows kids the quiet poetry in the science of what’s right in front of them. The book starts simply with, “Drip. Sip. Pour me a cup. Water is water unless …it heats up. Whirl. Swirl. Watch it curl by. Steam is steam unless…” and meanders through the many forms in which we find water in our world. Kids who like science will like this book but teachers or other adults who want to foster a love of the natural world will find this book a beautiful invitation for preschool through early elementary-age kids to consider the ways that they interact with water, as well as the turning of the seasons. A book about the water cycle could be boring unless it’s Water is Water.”
