There's enough water on this planet to fill 325 million trillion large milk jugs. Dive into The Wonder in Water and discover just what's in the wet stuff, from the tiniest raindrop to the largest ocean. Start with your own salty sweat. It not only keeps you cool but also feeds the masses of microbes that live on your skin, repelling germs and keeping you healthy.

From sprinkles of sweat, journey on to:
• Falling Raindrops -- Water from the sky can contain life as small as an amoeba and as large as a turt≤

• Patchy Puddles -- Nurseries for toads, bistros for bugs, or bait for the meat-eating pitcher plant;

• Freshwater Marshes -- Where fish and frogs frolic, muskrats and moose ming≤

• Quiet Lakes -- Roads for water-walking lizards; winter homes for microscopic life in ice;

• Fast-flowing Rivers -- Only for the strong (salmon) or the clingy (black fly larvae);

• Salty Seas -- Home to more life than anywhere else on Earth.

Young children will thrill to this watery expedition with Diane Swanson as their guide. There is microscopic photography to amaze, along with images that enhance the engrossing facts in the text and sidebars. Dip into The Wonder in Wate for an exciting adventure in one of nature's most fascinating habitats.
