Say Hello to H2O
When it rains, we cover our heads or grab an umbrella. When we’re thirsty, we turn on a faucet and get a drink of cool, refreshing water. Every day we come into contact with this precious resource, but how much do we actually know about H2O? Readers will learn all the essential facts about water, including: What is water actually made of? Why is it called H2O? How does it turn from a liquid into a gas, or from a liquid into a solid? And is it true that all the water on Earth has been here for billions of years?
Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of an early elementary audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume gives readers a chance not only to learn, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. With its stunning photographs and surprising, high-interest facts, this book makes learning about water an engaging experience.

SLJ Review - Drip, Drip, Drop: Earth's Water
As Lawrence explores various aspects of water, she engages readers in the process. Although the illustrations are merely adequate, relevant questions interspersed throughout the volumes encourage readers to think before they turn the page for the answer. The “Science Lab” activity at the end of each book goes beyond listing instructions by including questions to foster prediction and observation. VERDICT Beneath Your Feet’s exploration of groundwater and Say Hello’s clear explanations of water’s properties rank as top choices, but the entire series merits first-purchase consideration.
