The Water Cycle: Water Play Series Book 1 by Mayra Calvani and art by Alexander Morris
About the Book: Follow the water droplets in their journey from the clouds to the earth and back to the clouds again. Written in a lyrical style, the book takes a new angle on the water cycle by showing the feelings it evokes in people.
My Review: Award-winning children’s author, Mayra Calvani latest picture book is about how the water droplets form and turn into rain and drops over the farms, houses, schools and how they fill the side walk with puddles. People can get wet and children love to play in the rain.
The raindrops can get heavy to cause downpour or turn into a flood. The rain can be collected into a reservoir where a filter cleans it and it’s ready to drink through taps.
Children would learn that during the summer when it is very cold inside the cloud, hail may form which are solid chunks of ice and plunge like white rocks on the sidewalk. During the winter the droplets turn to ice crystals and grow into snowflakes and when the sun comes out the snowflakes melts and turn to water.
This book will teach children the different stages of water droplets how they turn into heavy rain, form hailstones, snowflakes and water vapor. The droplets can’t wait to get rounder and heavier soon the cloud can’t hold them any longer and they turn into rain again.
The last two pages include a word search and word match activities. The art works by Alexander Morris are bright and fun which helps to tell the story.
Great book for early learning!
