The Three Water Drop Brothers by Eun-hee Lee


Graphically gorgeous, with sweetness and flair, this is a book to get any kid hooked on the wonders of the water cycle!

A long, long time ago, when the earth was extremely hot, a huge amount of vapor was released, creating clouds. As the clouds got bigger and heavier, it started to rain. Three of those raindrops were brothers who came down to cool the hot earth and traveled, as water does, to every corner of the earth, including apartment building pipes and muddy rivers. Written by a scientist, this is a great book for all curious children and budding young explorers.
