1. The Water Cycle

THE WATER CYCLE
WATER PLAY SERIES BOOK 1
By Mayra Calvani
Illustrator Alexander Morris





Rain. Hail. Snow. Blizzards. Some people love to watch raindrops tap against the windowpane on a drizzly day. Others prefer to play in the snow and build snowmen and throw snowballs at friends. If you or your children are wet weather lovers, can you explain to your wee ones how the rain forms and what happens to the water when it reaches earth?

If you need help, Author Mayra Calvani’s new picture book, THE WATER CYCLE, WATER PLAY SERIES BOOK 1, will take you on a delightful journey through the water cycle. The book begins with the water droplets huddled inside the cloud until they’re too heavy, when they fall to earth. The different types of rain are described, from drizzle to downpour, from hail to snowflakes, and to everything in between. What makes the book so much fun, to me, are the questions the book asks the reader. This involves the child to not only read the words and look at the illustrations, but to think about the effect rain or snow or floods have on people. Speaking of the illustrations, Alexander Morris has created characters with personality. What do I mean by that? Has a raindrop ever winked at you? Or what about the tiny raindrops with … I think I’ll let you find them for yourself when you read the book.

THE WATER CYCLE would be a great book for Kindergarten, first, and second grade classroom science lessons. Students would have fun while they were learning. If it had been available, I would have used the book in my third grade classes when I was teaching. The book ends with activities for the children to do. I imagine young readers will want to read about the rain over and over. This is the first in a series. I’m looking forward to the others.
