“Water Dance” is a beautifully written and illustrated book about the water cycle. In simple language it poetically describes the many forms water takes within that cycle e.g. rivers, lakes, rain, and mist to name a few. The accompanying illustrations are beautiful oil paintings and are more likely to appeal to adults, but many children will still see the beauty and will be able to match the written with the pictorial description. Provided at the end of this picture book is a small section called “the water cycle”. It provides factual information on the water cycle making it not only an entertaining book but also an educational book.
