All about water...
Sandy Brehl
This is a delightful and kid-friendly nonfiction picture book about the many ways in which water surrounds us. The text is minimal, with simple secondary text (in smaller font) on many pages to clarify the content: ICEBERG (a rock that floats) or RIVER (rushing to the sea). Back matter describes the states of water (gas, liquid, solid) and other science content, making this a perfect pairing with Miranda Paul's WATER IS WATER.
Consider pairing (tripling it!) also with Luxbacher's DEEP UNDERWATER

A very cute and simple introduction to water for preschoolers. There's some sources in the back for further learning about water, and also a pretty nice water cycle chart.

This book rejoices in water in all its forms and disguises, coming from any number of sources, and interacting with the world and the people who live in it. Lyrical text combines with brush and ink illustrations that have been digitally colored, showing a variety of perspectives. This would be nicely combined with "Ice Boy" for a story time about the water cycle.

The brush strokes and methods used to paint water are stunning! I had the pleasure of listening to Antoinette Portis talk while she was working on this, which makes me appreciate the artwork more than I otherwise may have. The text was a bit abstract for youths, and it wasn't informative, but it was a nice read.
