"In this bilingual book, Mora uses her travels around the world to talk about water in unique ways, while creating varied and compelling imagery…Younger readers will enjoy the calmness of the words, while older readers will want to imitate the author’s style and try their own hand at descriptive writing."—School Library Journal
"Fourteen three-line verses, in English and Spanish, celebrate water in its many forms, from frost and fog to waves and waterfalls. Each verse is accompanied by a majestic double-page-spread painting from a specific place in the world…the poems speak to the wonders of water everywhere…Mora skillfully uses alliteration and assonance in the English versions of the poems…"—Horn Book
