Water Can Be...
An imaginative picture book describes water in tangible terms that are intriguingly varied with each season. The rhyming narrative begins in spring, when water can be a “tadpole hatcher” (pond) or “picture catcher” (puddle with reflection). In summer water can be a “drink cooler” (ice) or “rainbow jeweler” (rain). Autumn turns water into a “salmon highway” and “eagle flyway” (both a river). And in winter, water can be “storm creator” (snow) and “decorator” (ice on windows). The rhyming couplets provide creative ways of looking at water in each season, while the illustrations ground the ideas with concrete images.
