Genre: Non-Fiction, informational

Main Characters: Boy and girl, water
Setting: earth and atmosphere
POV: third person

The water we drink and use today has been recycled for billions of years. The same water we drink from the tap, could absolutely be the very same water that dinosaurs drank so many years ago. This book does a fabulous job outlining the water cycle, and the many uses of it. It talks about how human beings are made up mostly of water

POV: Second person

This water gives a girth of information on water through illustrations, diagrams, and the written word. Wells stresses the importance of water and describes cycles water is involved with such as how plants and people get nutrients, and of course the water cycle. This book also introduces science vocabulary such as molecules, condensation, evaporation, aquifers, dams, reservoirs, and how water can be a liquid, solid, or gas,
This series is an absolute favorite in our home. Robert Wells makes topics so understandable for kids and presents them in a fun way.

I think this book would be a great book to read in a third grade classroom. Its content is very informational, but the illustrations in the book make it a cute science book. The content is about water and the change it has gone through over time. A great activity to do with upper level classrooms related to this book would be to get the students to create their own story of water over time. Within their story they should include several facts about water.
My child was immediately drawn to this book because of the catch of the dinosaur. But that's not what this story is about... This is a science book about water. The water cycle on earth and all the places it goes and in all it's forms. Touching on habitats and creatures that are dependent upon water to live. It is a fascinating topic and a great introduction for the younger range. (My daughter is currently 5.)

Thanks to AW.

This book was interesting to read. You learn about water. it teaches kids a lesson to conserve water because we depend on it. It tells you how to conserve water like turn water off when brushing teeth, take short showers, don't litter, and fix leaking faucets. It's a good non fiction book. It defines some vocabulary in the book which is good because kids get to learn new words.
51 months -These are great books. Picture book format but full of great learning at the right level for O.
This is another great Robert E. Wells book. What will he think of next?
