Science & Children, NSTA - Ruth Ruud

"The science content is well done to explain how the water cycle operates. The author utilizes science vocabulary (condensation, evaporation, precipitation) in explaining the water cycle. An activity explaining how to make a terrarium relates to the water cycle. The author provides a good explanation of the importance of the water cycle and that the water that is now on earth has always been here. The actual photos aid the reader to comprehend the content as they are what the student would see in the sky at various times. The glossary defines seven major weather terms. This content supports the National Science Education Standards for earth and space science at the early elementary level." - Science & Children, NSTA

"The attractive and informative books in the "Spyglass Books" series that focuses on life science, earth science, and physical science follow a similar format. They open with a table of contents page and then move right into the subject. Each chapter or section features a heading in large type; words that are defined in the glossary are printed in bold. The text consists of mostly declarative sentences. For example, "All of the water that's on Earth right now is all that we'll ever have." The illustrations and pictures on the opposing pages often provide additional facts. The Did You Know information is also quite interesting. The photographs are all labeled and appropriate to the content. The text is simple, since these books are aimed at readers in grades 1 and 2. At the end of the text there is an activity. In this case, after learning about the water cycle, kids are encouraged to create a terrarium and observe it themselves. The bolded words are defined; there is a resource list with a few references, which are reasonably current; references to web sites followed by an index and brief introduction to the author." - Children's Literature
