A beautifully illustrated look at our wonderful watery world

This Drop of Water begins with a thunderstorm on a hot summer day. Suddenly – splash! A drop of water hits a girl right on the nose. Where did it come from? And where will it go? She wants to know!

The book uses this simple premise as a jumping-off point to explore what water is, where it comes from and how essential it is to life here on Earth. It explores topics as important and wide-ranging as how the Earth formed, the water cycle, clouds and the tides. It also highlights just how precious a resource water is.

A beautifully illustrated picture book with friendly narrative text by the award-winning author of This Little Pebble, which was shortlisted for prestigious science and art awards, This Drop of Water will make the topic come alive for readers aged 7 and up.
