A water ride like you've never experienced before, featuring the cutest drop of water in all of precipitation.
Meet Drop. She's water! And she's seen a thing or two. Yep, even dinosaurs; she's four and a half billion years old, after all. Everywhere Drop flows--and she flows everywhere--she keeps things moving, making life on earth possible, and having a great time doing it. (Have you ever plummeted from a rain cloud? Or took a thousand-year nap in a glacier? Drop knows how to live right.) With delightful panache and a steady stream of funny one-liners, Drop takes readers on an adventure through the water cycle and beyond. Filled with irresistible artwork, funny asides, and a steady sprinkle of kid-enticing facts, Drop is the story about water you never knew you were thirsting for.

About the Author
Emily Kate Moon has always been a big fan of water. She's been drinking it and splashing in it all her life! But growing up in California during a long drought meant she didn't see much of it fall from the sky. It wasn't until Emily moved to Florida that she met Drop, who showed her a thing or two about the water cycle. Emily is a cloud-gazer and artist. She loves to marvel at the wonders of nature, and writes and paints as a way to appreciate her world. She lives by the beach in Jupiter, Florida, with her two sons and their dog Romeo--who is, as it happens, afraid of water!

“Drop, an anthropomorphic water droplet portrayed as a smiling light blue ink splotch [provides] an endearing, conversational introduction to the water cycle.” —Publishers Weekly
