  • Bissonette’s poetic narrative, sprinkled with alliteration, leads readers seamlessly from one desert denizen to another…Clarifying information bites regarding each featured element or animal accompanies the text…this exploration of water’s vital presence in an arid environment is sure to please.

  • Bissonette crafts a factual, engaging narrative in this nonfiction picture book about tinajas…This book could be a good read-aloud and would work just as well at bedtime as in the classroom. The text has a gentle flow, and the illustrations capture the purples and blues of twilight.
