The hydrological cycle is a constant circulation, renewal, and apparent loss of water on earth. This phenomenon is present in everyday life without us even being aware of it. Pearl the Raindrop: The Great Water Cycle Journey by Rana Boulos is a book that explains the hydrological cycle in a very simple and fun way from the perspective of Pearl, a personified drop of water.

The book begins with an introduction in which the hydrological cycle is expertly described. This cycle is shown in the following pages in the form of a children’s story from the perspective of a water drop, Pearl. Each page of the book describes a particular part of this cycle. In addition, the whole book is illustrated, and the reader can follow the entire process visually from beginning to end.

First of all, I like the concept of this book. The author has managed to explain the hydrological cycle in a very simple but original way. I like that the cycle is divided into individual segments where each is described separately and in detail. In addition, each illustration shows the corresponding part of the cycle very well. Also, I relish the personification of the characters in the story, and those are primarily two drops, Pearl and Dewey. It gives a special charm to the story and makes it even more interesting to the children.

The only complaint I have about this book relates to the somewhat unoriginal illustrations. They seem too simple and inauthentic to me. Other than that, I enjoyed the book and have nothing else negative to say about it. In addition, I did not notice any grammatical errors in the book, so it seems exceptionally well edited.

I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. Although the book lacks creativity in the pictorial segment, it did not affect my overall reading satisfaction. I would recommend it primarily to elementary school teachers who teach science. I also think the book would be useful to all children who show an interest in the scientific field.
