This story follows the silly duo of Flo, the pelican and Eddy the cormorant as they head out on their fall migration. Initially they get lost, but soon find their route using waterways to guide them. As they travel they experience water in all of its forms as it moves above, on and below the Earth's surface. The use of poetry and bright, colourful illustrations make this book particularly appealing as a read-aloud to younger children. The text is also interspersed with water facts, and two additional pages at the back of the book provide information about becoming a water steward.
This book would make a great introduction to a unit on the Water Cycle. The book could also be used to engage children in a discussion about changes they can make at home to help conserve water, such as turning off the tap while brushing their teeth. The story also teaches students about pollution, including sources and means of reduction.
