A clever poem that follows a drop of water on the “Jet Stream Express” from a cloud near Maine. Symbols appearing throughout the book illustrate the different phases and transformations that the drop goes through on its journey.

I would use this book for a lesson on the water cycle. It would be a good Explain piece and could be used as a shared read with partners at a workstation. The teachers could make their own water cycles in zipped baggies using food coloring, plastic cups, and water.
