This book makes attractive a great deal of information about water and what is in it, on it, or useful about it. There are stories, things to do, jokes, songs and poems, as well as factual articles; there are brightly colored illustrations on almost every page. The table of contents is unusual in that it is in alphabetical order. The topics covered range from Jacques Cousteau to water safety, from the Northwest Passage to the importance of well water to the Red River Valley settlers, from whales to Handel’s “Water Music.” Altogether, Water is another of the wonderful new science books that make learning the fun that it should be.
