" This book has lovely illustrations and bright colors. It also lends a poetic voice to the science of water. But I don't understand why there are unpolished sentences like, "The water our Earth began with," or why the author makes words like "cave" possessive. Surely one may teach science artfully without sacrificing basic grammar. " Sheilagh said.
"The Drop in my Drink, The Story of water on our planet written by Meredith Hooper, illustrated by Chris Coady – Non-Fiction picture book – I specifically purchased this book for two of my year levels’ inquiry units when they were focusing on “How the World Works” and water inquiry projects. It is one of those books that is lengthy but drives the powerful message of the importance of water home to the reader. Especially if you want readers to understand how important and long water is to sustaining our planet. I personally started thinking of the disturbing dystopic novel, Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer, thinking about the changes in her novel after the moon moves closer to earth and damages our ecosystem, tides, water cycles, and more. I think it was because a portion of the book mentions that water is impacted by human’s actions…" The Styling Librarian said.
