|The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line.
Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt
their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to
offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these
lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive
for lists from previous months.
Water, Water Everywhere: Wet Weather, Soggy Survival,
and Aquatic Amusement for the Elementary Grades
Spring is here and summer soon will be, and that means water (or lack of it) in many forms and situations. Rain, storms, floods, or droughts prevail this time of year, and many kids will find themselves pool-, lake-, or seaside this summer. Whether kids are surrounded by too much water or not enough, the following list should provide kindergartners through middle-graders with plenty of opportunities for immersing themselves in watery worlds, or for watching others overcome damp disasters while they themselves stay high and dry.
