(synopsis from Goodreads)

Water Can Be... is a strong rhyming picture book that teaches readers about water, its various states, its cycle, and its uses.

Lovely pictures showcase the rhyming text. On most pages, only one concept is highlighted; there is further information about each of these ideas in a four-page section at the back. There's also a glossary to help younger readers understand some of the more unfamiliar terms.

I would recommend this book to those who are interested in learning about water, as well as to those who enjoy rhyming non-fiction picture books with evocative illustrations.

Quotable moment:

Premise: 4/5

Writing: 4/5

Originality: 4/5

Enjoyment: 4/5

Overall: 4 out of 5
