The Incredible Water Show

Debra Frasier. Harcourt Children's Books, $16 (40pp) ISBN 978-0-15-216287-0

Mrs. Page's class from Miss Alaineus: A Vocabulary Disaster turns to science in The Incredible Water Show by Debra Frasier. The fifth-graders perform onstage in skits that discuss properties of water and the water cycle. Addressing readers directly, two students assume the roles of a circus-like master of ceremonies, while their peers chime in with comments of varying relevance and levels of hyperbole. .
