    5. 1 Walter Wick shows us a the intricacy of water in a whole different way This is a nonfiction, fact filled picture book that includes remarkable photos of water in different forms It explains many different aspects of water like how it freezes, the water cycle, refraction, cohesion, and so so much It is very informative and eye catching 2 This book has a lexile of 870 It has some pretty difficult concepts in it like cohesion, so I would recommend it for grades 4 6th It is an independent level b [...]

    6. This is a simple science book that focuses on all different things associated with water I never knew that the surface of water has an elastic like surface, and that you can rest a steel pin on the surface of the water It was interesting to see all these different snowflakes, and I thought it was cool how they haven t found identical snowflakes I was amazed to find out that if a raindrop hits the ground and littler raindrops break up, there are around 3 trillion molecules of water in the raindro [...]

    7. This book is about water in all of it s states The explanations are paired well with the pictures and it would help readers to understand the state the water is in at that moment.These pictures are real.I would teach this book before a science unit First asking the kids what they know about water, then incorporating their answers while reading the book.

    8. Wick s photographs and text bring water s many qualities to life Each page creates a sense of wonder about these qualities too How can water run over us loosely, and yet when we hit it, it becomes hard like a wall The last pages of this book provides activities concerning waters many forms for the classroom This book is best suited for an elementary school library.

    10. I thought that Walter Wick s photography and discussion of water in this book was very well done Because of the brilliance of his photography he was able to demonstrate science principles, like that the molecules in a fluid are contantly moving, in a way that simply a verbal description, no matter how well written, wouldn t have been able to convey in the same way I found it interesting that it was classified as a picture book It makes me wonder about the definition of picture books, because I t [...]

    11. This book is a great, simplistic book It s large picture and clear text makes this a great primary informational book Additionally, the book has several photos that demonstrate difficult abstract concepts to children about the properties of water To support the text, the book includes several simple and fun experiments that deal with water As someone who is in love with science and teaching science , I could see this book being a great resource for a primary, or even 3 5 grade teacher having in [...]

    12. This books talks to us about water and all its different aspects The photographs in this book are great, they are simply so clear and it definitely draws the reader in and grabs their attention This book tells us that water is made up of tiny things called molecules It shows us how water changes its shape as it falls from a water faucet and how it starts off hanging from a strand and as it falls it detaches, turns into a ball and the strand breaks into tiny circles My favorite picture of the boo [...]

    13. This book was so easy to understand The author made it so you could easily understand what he was trying to teach you The pictures in this book are really amazing, I didn t know how he did so of them, until of corse I read the page Page 10 s picture is still amazing to me even when I understand how he did it 13, 16, and 17 are cool also I learned a lot about water while reading I would recomend this book to anyone looking for a book for science or just a good book about water I am glad I read th [...]

    14. This book is filled with amazing photographs of water in its different forms The book begins with a drop of water falling from a faucet water at its smallest part Wick explains how a droplet forms, falls, then expands As the book continues, the reader is able to see water qualities such as surface tension, adhesion, condensation, evaporation, etc Wick goes on to explain and illustrate through photographs the different types of snowflakes, how and why dew and frost form, etc This book would be an [...]

    23. Pre read for our upcoming science lessons My 6yr old daughter caught me reading it and requested to do it today instead of next week A very simple read but filled with a lot of information regarding water I love that it asks conversational questions to engage the reader along with some experiments that will aid in understanding water This book is also well organized into sections that build on itself.

    24. This book lays out basic principles for the study of water The projects are simple, and I can hardly wait till next winter so that the kids and I can catch a snowflake on a pocket mirror, press it down lightly with a feather, then view it through a magnifying glass The pictures of actual snowflakes are majestic.

    25. Here are a series of beautiful and fascinating photographs depicting the properties of water as it evaporates, splashes, condenses and bubbles This book is certainly for the tween crowd, but the writing is descriptive and interesting, sneaking the facts in subtly The glossary in the back of water related terms helps give clarity to the concepts.

    26. As the daughter of a waste water engineer, and having previously put together a text set on the water cycle, I found this text extremely valuable A Drop of Water by Walter Wick truly is a book of science and wonder, an absolutely must for science units on water A fabulous non fiction text highlighting all of the wonders of water.

    27. I really liked this book I thought it was neat how it went into detail about one drop of water What it is and what it can become It goes through the different forms of water liquid, gas, solid It also goes through the different stages and shows what water does when it mixes with other things The pictures in this book are real, show step by step processes.

    28. A book that uses clever science experiments to teach young readers about the properties of water In an author s note, Wick reveals that he was inspired to write this book after extensively studying science books on this topic from than 100 years ago.This would be a great book for classroom use, especially any lessons in which science is likened to magic Grades 3 5.

    29. Terrific kid friendly introduction to the chemistry of water Nice distillation pun intended of concepts Nice photography it is a book by a photographer after all Suggested simple home experiments at the end For the curious kid Not sure it will grab a kid who isn t at least a little curious about how the world works.
