Water Is Water: A Book about the Water Cycle - Miranda Paul, Jason Chin

Flowing poetry and wonderfully detailed illustrations blend beautifully in this unique collection focusing on the water cycle. Moving through the seasons, Miranda Paul’s verses convey that Water is Water (Roaring Brook, $17.99), even as it evaporates into steam, cloud, or fog. Jason Chin’s art captures falling rain and puddles that freeze into ice. With the coming of spring, water helps produce the miracle of growth. This often unnoticed process is given character in the collaboration between these two artists. Ages 6-10. Allison Witten

Sam and Dave Dig a Hole - Mac Barnett, Jon Klassen

On Monday, Sam and Dave Dig a Hole (Candlewick, $16.99), determined not to stop until they discover something “spectacular”. Aided by their faithful pooch, the pair plows into the earth until the hole is taller than they are. Thinking that they’re going nowhere fast, they start digging sideways instead of down, hoping this change of direction will lead them to something great. Every so often they switch their angle of approach again, but with no better luck. Author Mac Barnett and illustrator Jon Klassen—with help from Sam and Dave’s dog—show readers that spectacle is often just out of reach and can be found in the most unexpected of places.  Ages 4-8. ARW
