From the Inside Flap:

WATER!

Always changing, from liquid

to solid to vapor, water

keeps ALL LIFE alive.

WHY?

Because water moves!

The sun’s energy cycles it all

around our planet ― the Gulf

Stream and a giant, deep-water

river flow inside the seas, while

a river of water vapor f lies

across the sky. Water cycles

through YOU, too ― keeping

you alive and flushing away

your wastes.

But now Earth’s water balance

is changing. Some places have

too much water, and other

places have too little.

Can people learn to take better

care of Earth’s precious water?

Can you?
