In this newest book in the award-winning Sunlight Series, readers learn about the constant movement of water as it flows around the Earth. As the water changes between liquid, vapor, and ice, Sunlight powers all living things, ensuring that life can exist on Earth. Perfect for any reader--young or old!--this is an invaluable addition to all classrooms, libraries, and at-home collections.
