WATER IS WATER A Book About the Water Cycle

by | Read by Janina Edwards

Children Ages 6+ • 10 mins. • Unabridged • © 2015

Gurgles, drips, and the hiss of steam combine with a musical score to accompany Janina Edwards's accomplished narration of this poem about the water cycle. "Drip. Sip. Pour me a cup. / Water is water unless . . . /it heats up." Her voice lingers with relish on the internal rhymes and onomatopoeia that carry listeners from page-turn to page- turn. End rhymes announce each transformation. In Jason Chin's watercolors, two siblings, both kids of color, explore each change against a rural background--perhaps Chin's native Vermont--as the seasons turn and water evaporates, condenses, freezes, and more, ultimately plumping up apples that become sweet cider. Edwards also delivers the note that concludes the book, which gracefully incorporates definitions into its expansion on the concepts. A delight.
