Beginning with a boy standing at a kitchen sink, filling up his water glass, the lyrical first-person text describes all the places a single drop of drinking water has been: inside ancient plants and dinosaurs, in underground caves and on icebergs, in rainstorms and river currents. As the drop is traced through time, young readers will gain an understanding of the water cycle on our planet and will no doubt marvel at all the places an ordinary drop of water has been. Dramatic pastel paintings extend the narrative by zeroing in on specific details to illustrate the droplet's journey. (Ages 6-10)
