We read this sparse, lyrical book about the water cycle for bedtime last week and I knew right away I was going to post about it. First of all I love that Water is Water: A Book About the Water Cycle by Miranda Paul is a science book that is readable as a bedtime story. Yes, please! Second the illustrations by Jason Chin are BEAUTIFUL. I think this is the first book we’ve read illustrated by him, but I will definitely be on the look out for more. Third, the book features a biracial family (black dad, white mom, two kids) which can be hard to find in picture books, especially ones that aren’t specifically about different families. A win all around.
