Today we are introducing a new picture book Water Can Be... by Laura Purdie Salas and illustrated by Violeta Dabija, the same ultra-talented pair who brought us the wonderful A Leaf Can Be…
With top-notch mixed-media illustrations and charming rhyming text, most readers probably wouldn’t recognize this title as a nonfiction book, let alone a STEM book. However, it can be used to learn about the seasons, weather, the importance of water to living things, even life cycles.
Water Can Be… is perfect to accompany World Water Day (March 22, 2014) as well, because Laura Purdie Salas has pledged to donate 10% of proceeds of sales of this book to WaterAid.org, an organization that helps bring clean water and improved sanitation to areas that lack it.
It’s STEM Friday! (STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
