Water is always changing—from rain to rivers, fog to thunderheads and snowflakes to ocean waves. John Paterson's lyrical verses present water in its many colors, shapes, and forms as it follows its natural cycle through the seasons. Along the way, water speaks for itself: "Because of me the land is green. I'm why the sky is blue. All of life depends on me. I'm even part of you." John's evocative illustrations highlight water's many moods. Teachers and parents will appreciate the Explore More section in the back of the book that includes "The Science Behind the Poetry," STEM activities, water conservation tips, and more
As a child, John Paterson was fascinated by the changing form, steady purpose, and life-giving magic of water. Later, he chased rivers throughout the country as a white-water kayaker and raft guide. Professionally, he has helped craft stories of nature and culture for museums and other educational organizations including the Field Museum and the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago. He lives with his wife and two children in Northbrook, Illinois.
