Science Books & Films - Pamela Borne

"This appealing children’s book, targeted primarily at children between the ages of 4 and 8, teaches the basics of the water cycle by having four children follow each stage of how water moves through the cycle. As the children explore the water cycle outdoors, the information that they discover appears in a short paragraph with a close-up illustration. From one page to the next, the science content is cleverly set to the catchy tune of “Pop! Goes the Weasel!” Although some of the activities that this diverse group of friends engage in are probably not activities that young children actually participate in (scuba diving, white-water rafting, sailing, parasailing), other activities are right on target (boat riding, picnicking in the rain, tubing, dancing in mud puddles in the rain). Simple, uncluttered illustrations depict children who are happy to be outdoors and happy to be learning about this important part of our existence. The complete lyrics and written music are provided at the end of the book (unfortunately, without chords—just the treble staff), as is an audio file link. Teaching science content with wonderful illustrations and music is great teaching strategy, and this book does a terrific job combining the two. Unfortunately, the cost of the book may put it out of the reach of some educators." - Science Books & Films
