    "Not many children's books deal with this specific issue, so this book is automatically a good pick because it does address this concern. It also teaches children about being empathetic and helpful in general. It does have some religious overtones though, apparently, so it might not be the best choice for group readings or for families who find this to be particularly undesirable. "

    "Some people say that I am one thing. / Others say that I am many. / Ever since the world began / I have been moving in an endless circle . . . I am the rain." So begins the text of this unusual introduction to the water cycle. The book features a free-verse narrative illustrated by landscape and seascape paintings that show water in various forms referred to in the text: "I am the waterfall," "I am the clouds," or "I am the thunderhead." At the end of the book each picture appears in miniature accompanied by a paragraph explaining that particular phase of the water cycle. Those attracted to Locker's handsome artwork will find many beautiful and dramatic paintings here. Teachers may want to try this as a different approach to the water cycle. Although CIP places the book in the fiction collection, librarians may find it more useful in nonfiction collections, whether science or poetry, or shelved with Locker's other picture books. Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to the Library Binding edition."
