“A Drop Around the World” is an excellent book for children ages 6-9, with great illustrations and new vocabulary words for children to learn. It is an easy book to read and relates to topics taught in schools.


“I really liked this book. We have been studying this in school. It’s fun to follow the raindrop and see how they help animals and plants. I learned some new words and could go outside after it rained to see what raindrops did. I also learned how raindrops start.”


Zoey has such a quizzical mind and after reading “A Drop Around the World,” she was able to tell me where raindrops came from and where they go. The illustrations gave her the opportunity to use her imagination.
