"A Drop of Water"

Cover of A Drop of WaterA Drop of Water by Walter Wick is a science project book and photography art book in one. Through the beauty of astonishing close-up photography and simple text, art and science combine to explain concepts such as evaporation and condensation.

The camera stops the action so that readers can observe what they could not otherwise see: a drop of water as it falls from a faucet; a drop of water as it splashes on a hard surface; the points of an actual snowflake.

Readers will like this book because it goes through the different forms of water:  ice, steam, frost and dew. This book features simple experiments that can be done at home. Children will embrace this beautifully illustrated book while learning key scientific terms.
