Water cycle message is lost
Reviewed in the United States on May 11, 2020
This is a cutesy rhyming book on a level meant for 3 year olds. The illustrations are beautiful, but the water cycle message is lost. The whole book is definitely Halloween themed (ie Jack-O-Lanterns, apple cider, crow shaped clouds). Also, a detail that annoyed me is the kids picking up a turtle. So, ok, assume it’s not a snapping turtle, but then there’s a page where a kid is face to face with a snake, and on the next page, he has it in his hands getting off a school bus scaring a girl with it. I wouldn’t want small kids getting the wrong message that picking up snakes or even snapping turtles is okay. Then, the last page quickly goes over in detail the water cycle as if to make up for the whole book missing this message.
