All the Water in the World

All the Water in the World
by George Ella Lyon and Katherine Tillotson
Atheneum, 2011. Unpaged. Nonfiction.

This story of this book begins on its cover: "All the water in the world . . . (turn to the first page)
is all the water in the world." But where does that water come from? "Water doesn't come. It goes. Around." Tillotson's splashy, dashy pictures perfectly complement Lyon's funky text, describing the water cycle. Rain and rain and rain in one place--everything dust in another. Be careful with what we have, because, Honey, there isn't any more.
