Graeme Base is a masterful artist and author. My children have spent hours with his puzzle books over the years. Intricate illustrations are filled with riddles and surprises calling readers back for repeated discovery. The Water Hole is a quick, thought-provoking book with breath-taking illustrations. It evokes fascination, despair, joy, and gratitude in a countdown from 10. Readers tour ten countries and are introduced to the water-seeking wildlife in each, while immersing ourselves in vocabulary to spur kids to ask, “What does that mean?” The best question a vocabulary-building parent can hear!
