Definitely of value to a Primary library.

The stamp of Bobbie Kalman is definitely on this series. People's need for and use of water is fully explored for the Primary student. The language is simple and direct. Where necessary, meanings of water-related words have been given in a glossary. The generous use of colour photographs and some illustrations greatly aid the reader's comprehension of the topics discussed. Fifteen topics, which range from the forms of water to its conservation for all living things on Earth, have been included.

The book is well bound and the inclusion of a table of contents, glossary and index makes it a valuable resource for any library.
