About The Book:
Walter, a warthog, sees water everywhere: in the bathtub, from the garden hose, from the sky as rain. He writes down everything he notices about water in a special blue notebook. And then he shares what he learns with his friend Willa. As Walter and Willa do some science experiments, they find out cool things about water: water evaporates, ice floats, water can bring a dying plant back to life, and more. Tag along with Walter and Willa in this fun introduction to one of Earth’s most important resources. Simple experiments you can do at home and a page full of fascinating facts about water are included.

Breeze's Review:
I really enjoyed sharing this book with my daughters. Children sometimes have a short attention span when it comes to reading educational material to them so I was grateful that this book was both informative and fun. I loved how in the story Walter the warthog was not only curious about water but also extremely thorough in his research of it. He writes down what he learns about water, he did some fun experiments about water and he shared what he learned with his friends. My daughter was excited to try these same experiments on her own and I loved that she felt engaged! The illustrations are very unique and added another layer of creativity to this book. This is a great read!

  1. This is an excellent teaching book within a story. The warthog illustrations are fun and the experiments are ones that kids can recreate. If you only get one Nancy Elizabeth Wallace book, then get this one.
