With English and Spanish versions under one cover, Water Wonders / Las Maravillas del Agua features two young scientists, Sydney and Symon Starr, a sister and brother team who explore their world by asking questions and conducting experiments with help from their family and teachers. Together, the two discover science and engineering while expressing themselves through writing.
Water Wonders / Las Maravillas del Agua introduces the arts to STEM (science, math, engineering, and technology) education through various activities that encourage readers to experiment and solve problems on their own as well as through suggestions for further reading. This approach is a way to invite more learners into subject areas that can oftentimes seem intimidating and unapproachable.
The book was written and illustrated by New York Times bestselling author Peter H. Reynolds and his twin brother Paul A. Reynolds, founders of FableVision, an educational media developer and publisher. A free download is available from the National Writing Project; a print copy is also available for the cost of $5.00.
