Water Rolls, Water Rises = El agua rueda, el agua sube

by Pat Mora
Illustrated by Meilo So
Translated by Adriana Domínguez and Pat Mora

32 pages
ISBN: 978-0-89239-325-1

Ages 5-8

“Water rolls / onto the shore / under the sun, under the moon. / Water rises / into soft fog, / weaves down the street, strokes an old cat.” Water not only rolls and rises, it slithers, snakes, streams, slides, hums, plunges, skids, slips and much, much more in this language-rich offering. From the high plumes of clouds to the slow flow of a river, the pulse of a storm to the slumber of a reservoir, the bright sound of a bubbling spring to the heavy wash of the sea, Pat Mora offers up lyrical descriptions of water in many settings. Each three-line verse in this bilingual (English/Spanish) tribute to water is set against an expansive watercolor painting by Meilo So inspired by a specific geographic place on earth that is noted at volume’s end.
