For children who think they don’t like learning about science, introduce them to Water is Water: a Book About the Water Cycle. This beautiful hardcover book is a good introduction presented simply in few words so the young reader is not overloaded with information. Written by Miranda Paul and illustrated by Jason Chin, this is an excellent tool to help young readers understand the wonders of the water cycle.

Jason Chin‘s illustrations are remarkable and tell their own story to complement the words. The focus is on two children, siblings, who are enjoying nature.  They play by the pond and the little boy captures a turtle. A few pages later we see them releasing the turtle back into the pond. It’s interesting to see what’s happening with the children and their friends during their outdoor play. The cycle of water is shown as rain, drinking water, steam, clouds, fog, puddles, and includes ice and snow as we follow the children through the change of seasons. 

Miranda Paul’s words are educational while being enjoyable for young readers. She created a very interesting and fascinating read in pleasant rhyme about the changes water goes through, and although in different forms it’s still water.

You can find Water is Water: a Book About the Water Cycle by Miranda Paul on my BUY THE BOOK page. I also post my reviews on Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Goodreads, and Chapters.Indigo when the book is available there.

Please encourage an author and illustrator by leaving a comment. Thank you.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
