Book Review: Ice Boy by David Ezra Stein

Ice BoyBy Awnali Mills

The greatest ambition of an ice cube is to be chosen for someone’s drink.  Unless you’re Ice Boy.  He wants more from life.  So he slips out of the freezer and heads to the beach.  And there he begins his wondrous journey through the water cycle.

Speaking as someone who routinely tries to translate complex scientific concepts into language and contexts that a preschooler will understand, I loved this book.  Stein makes the water cycle a fun adventure.  Think that melting is a scary thing?  Nope!  It’s just a cool slide into Water Boy.  The illustrations are lovely; a nice combination of watercolor and pen and ink (and probably other things—let’s just call it mixed media.)  The book is funny, sweet, and above all, educational.  Definitely recommended for preschoolers through early elementary.
