A Drop of Water: A Book of Science and Wonder Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this spectacular science book, the camera stops the action so young readers can observe what they could not otherwise see: a drop of water as it falls from a faucet; water as a single snowflake; water as a rainbow, steam, frost and dew. Through the beauty of astonishing close-up photography and simple text, art and science combine to explain concepts such as evaporation and condensation.

Synopsis:

The most spectacular photographs ever created on the subject of water appear in this unique science book by Walter Wick. The camera stops the action and magnifies it so that all the amazing states of water can be observed - water as ice, rainbow, stream, frost, dew. Readers can examine a drop of water as it falls from a faucet, see a drop of water as it splashes on a hard surface, count the points of an actual snowflake, and contemplate how drops of water form clouds.

Synopsis:

A Drop Of Water (HC)
