What did you like about the book: Ready Jet Go! is great for early readers who enjoy the PBS hit series, Ready Jet Go! Water, Water Everywhere is one of six in the series- Starry, Starry Night, Journey to Pluto, Mission to the Moon, Sunspot’s Night Out, and Every Day is Earth Day are the other five. In Water, Water Everywhere join ‘Jet Propulsion and his friends on a tour of the world’s oceans. They go around Earth to see the lakes, rivers, oceans, and icebergs that make up our blue planet. In addition, they discover why water is essential to life on Earth.’ A fun filled text and simple colorful illustrations make this great for those learning to read and interested in gaining knowledge about our world’s oceans. The back pages contain interesting facts about water on Earth and in space: the water cycle, water by the numbers, ways to help take care of our water supply, and about sodium chloride found on Europa.
