“Water rolls, water rises/El agua rueda, el agua sube” Pat Mora

Rated 4 stars **** 2014. Children’s Book Press (Lee & Low.) Picture book. Includes “Author’s Note,” and a section titled “About the images in the book.”

WaterRollsWaterRisesInspired by real life landscapes from her many trips around the world, author Pat Mora’s lyrical, descriptive, bilingual voice is complemented by soothing drawings of the many faces and motions of water.

Descriptive words about water like “rolls, rises, waves, strokes, blows, and slithers” produce all sorts of movements, inspiring young children to reproduce these actions while also learning about water’s importance to the world and those within it.

Recommended for ages 4-9.
