All the Water in the World



A superb writer of poetry and nonfiction herself, Laura Salas reviews a picture book, All the Water in the World, by George Ella Lyon, on her blog today.

She writes that it “is one of the most glorious nonfiction picture books I’ve read in the past few years. It introduces kids to the amazing fact that we have a certain amount of water in the world, and that is it. The water that falls as rain today might have been underground for millions of years. The shower you take tonight might include water that was snow during a blizzard long ago. The book is so simple and striking and poetic and exciting. It’s full of movement and information. The design is as wonderful as the text and the art. And I love the voice. So, so wonderful.”

The more kids find out about water today, the better the chance for water equality in the future.
