Water Rolls, Water Rises / El agua rueda, el agua sube

By Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast

It’s a celebration of water, a series of verses about its movement, its patterns on the Earth, and its wonders. It’d be perfect for teachers and school librarians who are teaching students about the water cycle. My oh my, it’d simply be a lovely addition to that portion of the curriculum.  Mora manages to cover the following with her evocative poetry: The gravitational forces that pull on our oceans, the tide’s movements, the ways in which water moves across our land, evaporation, precipitation, collection, how humans use water, and more. Pair this one with informational texts on the water cycle, and watch some faces light up.
