“Hey, water! I know you! You’re all around.” Many ways of encountering or experiencing water are cleverly presented in simple illustrations and a few words addressed directly to the subject by a brown-skinned girl. Some consecutive images are linked by a shared feature, such as delivery method (faucet, sprinkler, shower) or body (ocean, lake, pool, puddle). Water in the natural world as rain, snow, fog, dew, and icebergs are included, as is water as tears that “slide down my cheek without a sound.” Final pages offer additional information on the water cycle, water forms, and conserving water. (Ages 2–5)
