'Water Wow!' is a nonfiction book about water for kids written in an accessible infographic format. My review copy was about the first third of the book, but it was enough to give me a sense of the book.
Through illustrations and facts in the book, we learn why ice floats, and why water is blue in lakes, but not in a water glass. We see how much water we actually have on the Earth, and how little is drinkable. We see the theories of where our water came from, and how it cycles in our atmosphere.
The facts seem good, and even though they talk about how limited the water is, I don't think it's overly scary. The illustrations are bright and interesting and terms are brought down to a level that a school age child would understand. I always like non-fiction books when I was young, and this one would have appealed to my younger self.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Annick Press Ltd. and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
