Follow the Water from Brook to Ocean by Arthur Dorros (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out, Stage 2, HarperCollins Children’s Books, 1991) emphasizes the collection and movement of water. It names and explains underground water systems, springs, brooks, rivers, and water’s power to carve through rocks to create canyons. Water’s interaction with Earth creates waterfalls, causes floods, and is dammed to create reservoirs for people to access for drinking.

The reader learns about the creatures that live in the water along the way, and the emphasis is that water always ends up in the oceans. Although the book does not emphasize the complete water cycle, it refers to the initial appearance of water as coming from rain. It works well to teach students about the role of water on our earth.
