From space, our planet looks blue. That's because about 71 percent of Earth's surface is covered in water. From vast oceans to long rivers, massive ice sheets to backyard ponds, this book looks at all the different places we find water on our blue planet's surface. Readers will discover fascinating facts about oceans, seas, lakes, streams, and glaciers. They'll also learn the answers to these questions: How much of Earth's water is salt water? How do lakes and rivers form? Where is Earth's frozen fresh water found? And how does water get into the clouds that float high above our planet's surface? Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of an early elementary audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume gives readers a chance not only to learn, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. With its stunning photographs and surprising, high-interest facts, this book makes learning about water an engaging experience.

SLJ Review - Drip, Drip, Drop: Earth's Water

As Lawrence explores various aspects of water, she engages readers in the process. Although the illustrations are merely adequate, relevant questions interspersed throughout the volumes encourage readers to think before they turn the page for the answer. The “Science Lab” activity at the end of each book goes beyond listing instructions by including questions to foster prediction and observation. VERDICT Beneath Your Feet’s exploration of groundwater and Say Hello’s clear explanations of water’s properties rank as top choices, but the entire series merits first-purchase consideration.
