Read and find out about the ups and downpours of the water cycle in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book. Down Comes the Rain is a clear and engaging look into the stages of the water cycle. After rain comes down, the sun comes out and dries the puddles. But the water isn’t gone. The heat from the sun has turned it into water vapor—it has evaporated. Eventually, this moisture in the air condenses to form new clouds. Soon the rain will fall again. Featuring rich vocabulary bolded throughout the text, this updated edition includes a glossary and a find out more section with an activity about the water cycle. Both the text and the artwork were vetted for accuracy by Don W. Hen and Dr. Sonia M Kreidenweis, Professor of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. This is a clear and appealing science book for early elementary age kids, both at home and in the classroom. It's a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades.
