    Another great science title from Wells. It's really not *about* dinosaurs -- it's about the water cycle, and how all water molecules have been recycled over and over for a long time (the molecule aspect isn't elaborated on, but still follows well from What's Smaller Than a Pygmy Shrew?). It covers fresh vs. salt water, how water is naturally cleaned and filtered, evaporation and rain, hydroelectricity, and also a bit about conservation at the end, which actually follows well from the text and do Another great science title from Wells.

    Informational: Did a Dinosaur Drink This Water? is an informational book that follows water through its natural cycle and informs young readers that the water we see, drink and use every day is the same water that was in the Earth when dinosaurs lived here. Students learn about the many forms that water can take, liquid, solid and gas and how water is recycled through these stages.

Students learn about the many forms that water can take, liquid, solid and gas and how water is recycled through these stages. The reader learns how water goes through the water cycle, and how water is used in many different ways by plants, animals and humans. I can use this book during a fourth grade class when learning about the water cycle in depth. The concept that water is neither created nor destroyed and what we have to use has always been what is on the Earth is difficult for many students. This book helps build the image that the same water we drink today is the same water dinosaurs used to drink millions of years ago. I will read this book as the engage part of my lesson to help students visualize what we will be learning about in the upcoming unit and to evaluate their preconceptions about water and the water cycle. Another great way to use this book in the classroom is to have students write a narrative about a molecule of water. The narrative must show that the student understands all forms of water, the stages of the water cycle and how water moves. The narrative will be written from the water molecule's point of view and will detail every part of the water molecule's life. Students will share their narrative with a partner, and their partner will provide feedback based on accurate information about water molecules that we learned throughout the lesson. Did a Dinosaur Drink This Water? is a WOW book for me because it is an interesting an engaging informational book. It took me a while to find an informational book that was interesting and kept me engaged while reading it. One of the main reasons I like this book is because the complex water cycles are explained and simplified by the illustrations throughout the book. I also really like how the book ends with a call to action for the reader, encouraging the students to conserve water and make sure that we are protecting one of Earth's greatest resources.

    learning experience, shocking these reviews are not that great, i am confused by that? if you are looking for 3 great reads from this author, Robert E. Wells. they are stocked full of learning materials ... i guess it truly depends on how or where your child is in their life ... are the able to understand the info ... enjoy the knowledge??! great illustrations. well done. shocking these reviews are not that great, i am confused by that? if you are looking for 3 great reads from this author, Robe learning experience, shocking these reviews are not that great, i am confused by that? if you are looking for 3 great reads from this author, Robert E.

I read, 3 of his books: "What's Smaller Than a Pygmy Shrew?", "Did a Dinosaur Drink This Water?", and "How Do You Know What Time It Is?". (They are listed by my favorite... all great, just really was pulled in by the name "Pygmy Shrew" i know the name, was it from a tv show, thinking, thinking??! and i always love Dinos) all must reads.

    This book is a great book to show kids when talking about the water cycle. It goes in depth about water as well as how water is being polluted. I love how there are many pictures and in depth descriptions as well.

    Grade/interest level: 3-5 Reading level: 870L Genre: Non-Fiction, informational Main Characters: Boy and girl, water Setting: earth and atmosphere POV: third person Summary: The water we drink and use today has been recycled for billions of years. The same water we drink from the tap, could absolutely be the very same water that dinosaurs drank so many years ago. This book does a fabulous job outlining the water cycle, and the many uses of it.

The same water we drink from the tap, could absolutely be the very same water that dinosaurs drank so many years ago. This book does a fabulous job outlining the water cycle, and the many uses of it. It talks about how human beings are made up mostly of water. It explains how water gives plants and animals energy to grow and live. It explains in full details the process of evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and transpiration. It has beautiful, vivid, and incredibly informational pictures. The illustrations are very descriptive and make the entire water cycle easy to see and understand. Classroom Use: This book is perfect to use when teaching the water cycle. It can be used as a read aloud. If enough copies are available a shared reading would be even better. The book can be broken up into sections, and each section can be read on different days. They can be paired with experiments so that students can get a better understanding of the scientific concepts. The visuals in the book are amazing, so they can be used to help student understanding.

    Grade Level: 2-3 Main Characters: NA Setting: NA POV: Second person Summary: This water gives a girth of information on water through illustrations, diagrams, and the written word. Wells stresses the importance of water and describes cycles water is involved with such as how plants and people get nutrients, and of course the water cycle. This book also introduces science vocabulary such as molecules, condensation, evaporation, aquifers, dams, reservoirs, and how water can be a liquid, solid, or gas, Grade Level: 2-3 Main Characters: NA Setting: NA POV: Second person Summary: This water gives a girth of information on water through illustrations, diagrams, and the written word.

In the end he gives information on how we can conserve water so, "there will always be delicious water to drink- even if a dinosaur drank it first!" Classroom uses/themes: Obviously this book can be used to teach students about water, the water cycle, and conversation. Themes that can be used in interdisciplinary units are conversation and cycles (such as life cycles, respiratory cycle, recycle, etc.)

    I think this book would be a great book to read in a third grade classroom. Its content is very informational, but the illustrations in the book make it a cute science book. The content is about water and the change it has gone through over time. A great activity to do with upper level classrooms related to this book would be to get the students to create their own story of water over time. Within their story they should include several facts about water.

    My child was immediately drawn to this book because of the catch of the dinosaur. But that's not what this story is about... This is a science book about water. The water cycle on earth and all the places it goes and in all it's forms. Touching on habitats and creatures that are dependent upon water to live. It is a fascinating topic and a great introduction for the younger range. (My daughter is currently 5.) Thanks to AW.

    This book was interesting to read. You learn about water. it teaches kids a lesson to conserve water because we depend on it. It tells you how to conserve water like turn water off when brushing teeth, take short showers, don't litter, and fix leaking faucets. It's a good non fiction book. It defines some vocabulary in the book which is good because kids get to learn new words.

    Both my son and daughter picked this up and read it on their own because it looked appealing. They were a little disappointed there wasn't more about the dinosaur in the book. Overall a good book on the water cycle. Basic brief info on hydroelectricity, water pollution, and conservation principles.

    Did you ever wonder how water ended up in our oceans? Where it came from? How old it is? Then this is the book for you.
