Water is a part of your everyday life. But when you fill a glass with water, did you ever stop to wonder where it comes from? Water was present during the Earth's dramatic formation billions of years ago. It has carved out canyons and worn away coastlines. It has spent thousands of years at the bottom of an ancient sea, and traveled for just a few hours as vapor in a cloud. It has been part of millions of organisms over time. including a worm, a Tyrannosaurus rex, even an Egyptian princess. In this engaging science picture book, water takes on fascinating new significance as readers discover the amazing complexity of a substance so familiar that it's often taken for granted. Includes a detailed depiction of water cycles, amazing facts about water, plus important environmental information.

I enjoyed reading this book because of the illustrations, which I found very beautiful and peaceful. I also loved the writing. Her way of approaching the water cycle through the notion of where that drop of water has been over the millennia was very imaginatively done, and her use of language was a pleasure, with many unexpected but graceful turns of phrase. I know it is for young children, but I wonder if older students would enjoy it as art, both visual and written. I would be curious to hear from high school teachers who read it.
