Did you know that rain is recycled?
After rain comes down, the sun comes out and dries the puddles. But the water isn't gone. The heat from the sun has turned it into water vapor -- it has evaporated. Eventually, this moisture in the air condenses to form new clouds. Soon the rain will fall again. Read on to find out all the ups and downpours of the water cycle!

James Graham Hale has illustrated several other books for children, including 'Round and Around by James Skofield; Through Moon and Stars and Night Skies by Ann Turner, a Reading Rainbow Featured Selection; and Barney Is Best by Nancy White Carlstrom. Mr. Hale lives in Ulster Park, New York.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4?This newly illustrated edition of Rain and Hail (Crowell, 1983) is a concise and informative look at the water cycle. Branley provides a fundamental understanding of how water is recycled, how clouds are formed, and why rain and hail occur. A few easy science activities are included. Words that might be unfamiliar to readers are defined in context. The pen-and-ink with watercolor wash paintings clearly interpret the concepts presented on each page. Throughout the book, speech bubbles from a group of children provide further clarification. This beginning reader would be especially useful to elementary teachers, but will also fill a niche for young researchers.?Stephani Hutchinson, Pioneer Elementary School, Sunnyside, WA
