Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- An excellent presentation of introductory material about water. Addressing readers in the second-person "you," it clearly explains such terms as "brook," "stream," "river," and "delta," and illustrates such basic concepts as where water comes from, how it travels, and where it goes. The illustrations are simple, almost childlike, in soft colors. In a few cases, however, it is difficult to distinguish between water and land because the contrast in tone is subtle; otherwise, the artwork is pleasant and effective. Comparable titles include From Ice to Rain (Carolrhoda, 1981) by Marlene Reidel and Diane Tippell's Water (Silver Burdett, 1986). --Rosie Peasley, Somerset School, Modesto, CA
Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Water is always flowing, from a brook to a stream, to a river to the ocean. Read and find out more about how water shapes the earth and why it is important to keep our water clean.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Quickhappy on June 8, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book covers a surprisingly large breadth of material. Children are instructed about many aspects of water in a non-intimidating, gentle format. Like a gently flowing stream the book takes children from raindrop to ocean, pausing at a great many stops in between. The young reader may not even be aware how much they've learned from this lovely book. The book touches on, but might have done more with, the terrible challenges of water for the 21st century: pollution, drought, flooding, conflict over water, and rising sea levels. Highly recommended for schools, libraries, and families.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on December 4, 2000
Format: Paperback
This is a great read for early learners who are just being introduced to the concepts of the flow of water. Two young children, one boy and one girl, follow rain water from brook to ocean. The book goes into enough detail to give the reader a base, and includes a few other pieces of information that might urge your reader to explore more.

The book teaches what it needs to and I am happy with my purchase. However, two things needed improvement in my opinion to make the book 5 star. First, a few illustrations can be a bit confusing... for example, i kept trying to figure out what the white "gyser" was on page 11 only to realize it was a border between two separate pictures. Second, some of the sentences were not written following the best writing practices. For example, I was taught it is unprofessional to start a sentence with an "and." This book does teach the topic of water traveling downhill very well for the given age group and I love the ending scene where you see how far the water traveled to the sea... but with a little editing and a critical eye, I think the book could be better.

My 3 year old was asking about rivers, streams and oceans and this was one of the only books I could find. It will be better when he is a little older, as it is very wordy. For the moment we make up the words and the pictures are OK at conveying the concepts.

is a very colorful book, has good information about the water cycle, is good for early readers and also for kindergarteners, the images are correspondent to the information. No overwhelming paragraphs, instead, the sentences blend with the images.

Wonderful introduction series to different science topics. This one teaches children how water flows from brooks to streams to rivers to the ocean.
It is at a Pre-K level for children ages 3 to 6 years.
