Hey, Water!

«'This is a superb example of an information text, ostensibly for younger children, but with multi-age and multi-curriculum uses. It is also a thing of beauty, printed on high quality paper doing full justice to the stunning illustrations, with the author’s expressive brush work, clever layout and a palette filled with watery blues and greens and the white and grey of rain, fog and snow.' LOVE READING 4 SCHOOLS;'A non-fiction picture book a few years ago may have seemed impossible, it isn't, this book shows us both how and why … Read and learn, learn and read. A book that will spark conversations, can be read as a story of an information title and is sneakily packed full of science too. Ideal for younger readers, bold artwork and a strong design. Let's hope this boundary-crossing book is the start of more to come.' ARMADILLO MAGAZINE;'A gloriously illustrated non-fiction picturebook about water …There are useful pages at the back about the importance of water and Portis uses unusual colours, textures and shapes, plus muscular sweeps of pait and patched of clever print – every page is different. The perfect book for any budding scientist or artist or scientist-artist!' IRISH INDEPENDENT;'This strikingly illustrated nonfiction picture book seems simple but works effectively on several levels … This would be an excellent addition to school, public and family libraries as it combines themes of science and conservation with striking design and use of colour to appeal to a range of ages.' BOOKS FOR KEEPS;'This would be an excellent addition to school, public and family libraries as it combines themes of science and conservation with striking design and use of colour to appeal to a range of ages.' NAYU'S READING CORNER;'A very useful book for parents and preschool teachers to introduce tricky science concepts to the very young.' RED READING HUB;'Both a beautiful work of art and a source of education, information, entertainment and discovery. ' LANCASHIRE EVENING POST»

Hey, water! I know you! You're all around. Join a young girl as she explores her surroundings and sees that water is everywhere. But water doesn't always look the same, it doesn't always feel the same, and it shows up in lots of different shapes. Water can be a lake, it can be steam, it can be a tear, or it can even be a snowman. As the girl discovers water in nature, in weather, in her home, and even inside her own body, water comes to life, and kids will find excitement and joy in water and its many forms. This book is conversational in tone and good to read aloud, but full of scientific facts narrated from a child's perspective. The artwork is bold and striking, with beautiful design make this attractive to pick up and handle. There is added backmatter on the water cycle, water conservation, and more.
