Comments for the Water Hole

The Water HoleThe Water Hole: 09/28/09

The Water Hole by Graeme Base is a counting book with an environmental message. Each page shows a different region of the earth with native animals gathered around an ever dwindling source of water.

The book has Graeme Base's uniquely detailed illustrations. The back of the book has a list of the different animals presented.

To further add interest to young readers, the water hole is cut out of the book, giving an extra dimension to the experience. For the earliest pages, the different levels of water show through like ripples in a pond.

For fans of the book, there is also a coloring book available based on the original book.

I love his illustrations. And the way the water hole was designed looks so cool.

The design of the water hole was one of the big draws for us to the book.
