TAKE ME HOME: WATERS OF THE WORLD is an engaging nonfiction picture book that teaches basics and fun facts about oceans, lakes, and rivers. The book is written in a way that is part story, with characters showing the reader around, and part facts with fun details about animals, waters, and plants throughout. There is a lot to learn in these intriguing and easily digestible facts found on every page.

What I loved: There is so much to learn in this book, and I loved all the cool facts included throughout. The book encompasses a lot of information about oceans, lakes, and rivers, with information about the waters themselves, such as the layers, and about the animals and plants that live within them. The presentation of these is particularly approachable with adorable fictional characters leading the readers to the information. It begins with different animals showing up on shore, and a young girl who is determined to take them all home - to the many different waters they call home.

The illustrations are fantastic throughout with a light cartoonish element that will appeal to young readers and so many cool details on each page. Together with the text, there is so much to learn! Animals and information come to life through the images.

The font is really easy to read throughout, and I appreciated that animals are labeled where they are pictured, whether or not they are accompanied by fun facts. The pages themselves are very durable as a light board book format that would make this a great book for classrooms and for sharing. This book would be a great start to learning about bodies of water and the many things that live there- perfect for children who love learning cool facts!

Final verdict: With an engaging presentation and detailed illustrations, TAKE ME HOME: WATERS OF THE WORLD is a great choice to learn fun facts and as a springboard to studying oceans, lakes, and rivers and the creatures who live within them. Highly recommend for classrooms, libraries, and for budding ocean enthusiasts!
