Praise For Splish Splash

"Graham uses simple phrases and images, displaying both a fine ear and a lively imagination..." Kirkus Reviews

"A colorful collection of poems about water and the particular ways children may come in contact with it -- from ocean waves; to rain, hail, and dew; to steam and ice. . . . An enjoyable introduction to poetry that will also be a boon to teachers taking a whole-language approach to science units. A fun and useful purchase." School Library Journal, Starred
