TITLE : THE WATER CYCLE : WATER PLAY SERIES BOOK 1
AUTHOR: MAYRA CALVANI
ILLUSTRATIONS BY : ALEXANDER MORRIS
PUBLICATION : GUARDIAN ANGEL PUBLISHING, INC.
This is Mayra Calvani's second book that I have read. While the first one was sweet, this one is simply outstanding.
As the name itself suggests, this book is about the journey of water droplets from the clouds to earth and then again back to the clouds.The book is very comprehensively written in lyrical form. It covers nearly everything on the topic from drizzle - rain - downpour - flood - hail- snow -blizzard! Not only there is information on all the aspects of water cycle but also how water reaches our homes. The book is peppered with interactive questions, that makes it more interesting and easily understandable for children. At the end of the book there are activities like, seek and find words, puzzles etc.
The illustrations have been done by Alexander Morris and are wow, simply excellent!
In my opinion, both Mayra Calvani and Alexander Morris have done a very good job. The book teaches, but does so in a very playful manner. The suggested age for readers is four to eight.
I loved this book and would definitely recommend it to all kidlit readers.
