From rain to rivers, from fog to thunderheads, from snowflakes to ocean waves—water is always changing. Lyrical verses present water in its many colors, shapes, and forms as it follows its natural cycle through the seasons. Along the way, water speaks for itself, connecting deeply with readers – “Because of me the land is green / I’m why the sky is blue / All of life depends on me / I’m even part of you.” The evocative illustrations highlight water’s many moods – “I can show you rainbows / in mist or morning dew / I can be a muddy flood / or a pool of aqua blue.” Teachers and parents will appreciate the Explore More section in the back of the book that includes “The Science Behind the Poetry,” STEM activities, water conservation tips, and more.
