Experience the rain without having to get wet

If you live in the Northeast, chances are you feel as though you're Noah and you should be building your ark. We've been hammered with rain during the last week, and if you have little ones, you know how restless they can get having to stay inside. So why not take the opportunity to teach them about rain with Mayra Calvani's latest book, THE WATER CYCLE: WATER PLAY SERIES BOOK 1?

In  THE WATER CYCLE, young readers will be fascinated to learn that water droplets form in the clouds and when the clouds can't hold them up, they fall and turn to rain. Then follow along as the rain fills the sidewalks with puddles, turns into a flood, goes into a station called a reservoir where we get our drinking water from, and ends up in the ocean. Young readers will also learn about hail, how the water droplets turn into snowflakes, how it can become a blizzard and how water vapor rises into the air, only to start the entire process all over again.

This is a difficult topic, however, Calvani presents it in a way that makes it fun and easy to comprehend for young readers. Bright illustrations help convey the message, interactive questions are scattered along various pages, and you can keep the kids busy with some fun activities at the back of the book. So the next time you're stuck inside because of the rain, pick up your copy of THE WATER CYCLE and experience the rain without having to get wet.
