Very vivid, colorful pictures portray water in a wide variety of forms.  Rain, dew, ice and snow, of course; but also mist, food, and tears.  Throughout the book a little boy with a toy boat discovers water, from a tiny brook to the enormous sea.  This book is also great for sight words, with very simple sentences like “Water is rain.”  We began with my son reading the word “water” on each page, and later added some of the other words.  What he really enjoyed though, was one very busy urban scene, which depicts water in more than a dozen uses.  He let out a cry of delight each time he found another use of water in the picture.  I love to watch him learn!
