I'm so in love with this book! It's clever and poetic and inspiring. All the things that "water can be" are not only beautifully illustrated and poetically explained ("Water can be a tadpole hatcher, picture catcher..."), some of them really made me think about water in a new way ("salmon highway, eagle flyway" "woodchuck warmer, snowman former").
Also the end of the book has a web address of the organization WaterAid.org, which helps bring clean water to communities worldwide.
