Grade 1-3Simply written, with colorful photos on almost every page, this slim introduction to waterfalls presents some of the more spectacular examples (e.g., Niagara Falls, Victoria Falls, Iguaz Falls). Fowler also discusses waterfall formation (the photo described as showing part of a cliff collapsing from the wear of the tumbling water looks remarkably like a glacier calving), the use of falling water for power (if readers dont know what a turbine is, there is no glossary to help them), and the aesthetic enjoyment of their undeniable beauty. A utilitarian addition to a utilitarian series.Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
