From Booklist:

Wells, who explored topics such as large numbers in Can You Count to a Googol (2000) and the measurement of time in How Do You Know What Time It Is?(2002), now tackles the water cycle, explaining that the earth's water has been constantly recycled not just since dinosaur days but for billions of years. The simple text asks good questions and offers clearly worded answers, enhanced by lively, colorful ink-and-watercolor illustrations. In the pictures, two children travel in a helicopter-like gizmo all around the world, observing streams, rivers, oceans, rain, snow, glaciers, a dam, and so on. Readers will also see illustrations of evaporation and underground aquifers. The text ends with a plea for water conservation. A playful but sound introduction to the water cycle. Carolyn Phelan

Book Description Albert Whitman & Company. Paperback / softback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Did a Dinosaur Drink This Water?, Robert E Wells, It's hard to imagine--the molecules in the glass of water you just finished might have once been part of a water hole that dinosaurs drank from! In this fascinating new book by Robert E. Wells about the water cycle, readers will find that while it might be hard to imagine, it's true. In a conversational tone, Wells tells us that water is the only substance found naturally in three states of matter--liquid, solid, and gas. He explains the complete water cycle and also discusses ocean currents, ocean and lake habitats, and hydroelectricity. Finally, the author touches on water pollution and our responsibility to keep our water clean. The author's bright cartoon illustrations make this information especially appealing to kids.
