The illustrations in this book are done with watercolor, colored pencils, an acrylics. The colors tend to be bright and vibrant in each of the framed illustrations. In each of the pages no two sections are the same. Even on the same page there are no two sections (clouds, snowflakes, raindrops...) that are the same. This book follows water in its many places and forms, and how it is used by plants and animals. There is even a full page of a neighborhood that shows many different ways that people use water. Overall a very colorful book.
This vividly colorful story is great for teaching your youngest students about what water is and all of the places it comes from. It would be a great book to read aloud to them as an introduction into the water cycle. It has very few words on a page and some words are repeated throughout therefore some of your advanced students may be able to read it after a few times hearing it aloud.
Water, by Fank Asch, is a wonderful book for new readers. The text is simple and easy, but what really sticks out is the pictures. The illustrations were done with watercolors, acrylics, and colored pencils and capture the attention of any reader. However, the rainbow colors would especially attract a younger audience. Perfect for any child just coming in the world of literature.

Great picture book about water for very young readers. I did have to explain to my students that the writer used rainbow colors for the water. They have a hard time distinguishing the water from other features on a few pictures due to the rainbow colors, but they liked the story and illustrations.
I liked this book, it could be useful within a early childhood classroom while teaching science.
simple text and amazingly colorful illustrations describe all the types of water to be found all around us.
The very colorful illustrations are well done and worth a look but as far as a book about water goes, there are better.
