Reviews - What do customers think about A Drop Of Water?
Just so wonderful! May 25, 2008
If you have a budding young scientist in your circle, I strongly urge you to purchase A Drop Of Water as an inspiration to further learning in the arts and sciences. Walter Wick is an amazing talent, and all his books are worth your time and money.
The beauty of the photography is a wonder to behold.
Very highly recommended. You'll keep this book forever.
A perfect science picture book Mar 27, 2006
Beautiful pictures and a wide variety of science related to water is illustrated. A thoughtful teacher grades 3-8 could easily construct a full science unit from this well constructed picture book.
Photographic wonder Dec 18, 2004
This book is a must have for any school library or homeschool science collection. Wick is perhaps best known for his "I Spy" books but here he is demonstrating his incredible talent with a science subject. He captures the essence of a water drop, the nature of steam, the momentary existence of a soap bubble and a snowflake in exquisite beauty. He shows us what our own eyes cannot fathom. Use this book to teach and learn about the water cycle, states of matter or art appreciation. The book pairs wonderfully with "Snowflake Bentley" by Jacqueline Briggs Martin.
Really Descriptive Nov 30, 2003
This helped me alot while performing my science project. It's cool to everyone I know no matter what their age was...
Excellent read-along for Classical Homeschoolers Aug 25, 2002
I am doing 3rd grade chemistry based on the Well-Trained Mind. This read-along was excellent for our chemistry experiments on molecules, and I look forward to using it several times with the other topics it presents. The photos are absolutely stunning. Even though the reading level is higher than 3rd grade, the focus is on the photos - and they do a wonderful job of rounding out the student's grasp of the concepts. My husband and I both learned something new, and even the 6 and 3-year-olds are pointing out condensation and water vapor along with their third-grade brother.
Included in the back are suggested experiments for those who do nature study along the lines of Charlotte Mason's theories. Definitely a keeper.
