Summary
"Water is essential to life on our planet. Water is constantly moving between Earth's surface, the air, and the ground. But did you know that water cannot be created or destroyed? Or that water is not only a liquid but also a solid and a gas? See the water cycle in action in this fascinating book"--

Review
(The following is a combined review for Investigating Animal Life Cycles; Investigating Plant Life Cycles; Investigating the Carbon Cycle; Investigating the Rock Cycle; Investigating the Water Cycle; Investigating Seasons; and ) Gr 3 – 5 — Solid introductions to natural cycles pack lots of information into clear, straightforward presentations. Plant Life Cycles includes flowering, cone-bearing, and seedless plant cycles, while Rock Cycle explains the formation and relationship of sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks. Water Cycle covers topics such as condensation, evaporation, and precipitation, while Carbon Cycle examines carbon bonds, photosynthesis, and climate change. Each title provides suggestions for simple experiments and observations, clearly identifying activities requiring adult help. Text boxes placed next to photos and diagrams pose relevant questions and offer additional facts. Because each book deals with a different topic, librarians can choose volumes as needed to supplement or update collections in specific subject areas. VERDICT These basic overviews serve as good resources for independent investigators or report writers. --Kathy Piehl (Reviewed November 1, 2015) (School Library Journal, vol 61, issue 11, p45)
