Splish Splash

Splish Splash - Joan Bransfield Graham, Steve  Scott

10/9/15 ** A delightful series of poems about water in all it's many forms: sprinklers, ice, steam, the water cycle, popsicles, sprinklers, ponds, brooks, etc. 

 

The word play, rhymes, and rhythms are compelling in their own right. The book would also be an interesting addition to an elementary class's study of the water cycle or states of matter.

 

The third poem, "Ocean," would also serve well as a short text on inferences - figuring out where the narrator is and using the pictures and textual cues to support one's assertion.
