Reviews - What do customers think about The Water Hole?

Amazing!  Dec 3, 2007
The Water Hole is an amazing book. The illustrations are pieces of art and the message is one of great importance. If you love wildlife and animals, this is a book for you. My daughters love looking for the hidden animals in each picture. I bought it as a Christmas gift for my daughters, but I think I purchased it more for myself.
The Water Hole  Oct 4, 2007
Another beautiful and entertaining book by Graeme Base! I enjoyed every page and bought more to share with my favorite young readers.
great book on so many levels  Jul 2, 2007
enjoyed by children learning to count and by kids that love to find the hidden animals. What I like is how my 3 and 7 year olds both love it and I can make story time long or short depending on if I just read it or if we search out all the animals. also has a great message.
Not appropriate for school-age kids  May 10, 2007
Don't get me wrong, this is a really great book. This book was just not what I expected. Illustrations were great and words in this book were minimal - very appropriate for preschool kids. I had intended this for my school-age kids and it was too simplistic for them. Also, this book make it sound like the earth will restore itself on its own (raining solving drought problem) when in fact, the earth needs our help to restore it by not wrecking havoc Mother Nature.
favorite children gift  Feb 7, 2007
I give this book to children all the time and the joy is given ten fold back
