Grade 3-6-- Clear, readable language and bright, sharply reproduced photographs provide a reservoir of information about the hydrologic cycle--the repeated pattern of water movement on and beneath the Earth's surface, including evaporation, condensation, and precipation. Although the text could stand on its own, detailed drawings and superb photographs provide exceptionally clear examples to augment the text. Walker includes explanations of humidity and its effects on air temperature, rainbows, dew and dew point, differences between fog and mist, acid rain, and the formation of hailstones. Handsomely illustrated, this is an appealing choice for school reports. For classroom experiments, try Ardley's Science Book of Water (HBJ, 1991). Younger readers will soak up Schmid's poetic picture book, The Water's Journey (North-South, 1990). --Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
