Review: Hey, Water

This easy to read non-fiction book is a celebration of water that has something for everyone. Colourful illustrations showcase all the different forms of water; fog, steam, clouds, icebergs that children will be able to identify with.

Author Antoinette Portis takes us on the journey of a young girl as she discovers how versatile water is and the different sizes and shapes it appears in. 

This simple introduction to water explores how we use water in everyday life, sometimes without realising it.

There are the natural sources of water where its beauty is evident in streams, rivers, oceans and lakes. Water can also be playful, we celebrate and have fun using water with pools, puddles, rain and ice-skating rinks.

Aside from the story, the various water forms of liquid, solids and gas are explained, along with the life cycle of water and how we can help with the conservation process.

Other features of the book include vocabulary building as part of the story for young readers, fun science experiments that are a perfect way to introduce the look and feel of water and a true or false quiz to test your knowledge.

Hey, Water is the perfect book for any budding young scientist as they discover and learn about the different forms of water.
