Description
Originally developed as a primary ESL Resource developed for Hispanic immigrant children in Southern California with descriptive and engaging dialogue. Easily adapted to structured learning tasks and for developing interactive discussion.

Summary
The Incredible Adventures of TweedleDrop, Book 1, is a morally focused children’s novel that explores the exciting world of life and science through the eyes of a water droplet personified as a young girl. Through clear, easily readable dialogue-rich text, Tweedy and best friends Alice, Roger and Peter discover and explore the natural wonders that make up our world. Starting in a glacier in the northwestern part of Alberta’s Jasper national Park in the Canadian Rockies, our group of intrepid travelers investigate the geological processes that have formed the world we live in. Traveling down the Smoky River and eventually down the Columbia River in Washington State, they explore the wonders of natural lakes and dams, electrical generation, and the natural and scientific processes that make up our complicated and interconnected world. Along the way, Tweedy and her friends befriend salmon and explore the wonder of the salmon runs, discover the challenges posed by pollution and nature’s processes for dealing with manmade contamination, and investigate our moral and ethical roles in caring for the fragile world we live in.

Excerpt
That night, the moon was full and the skies were free of clouds. I had forgotten how beautiful the sky could be at night with a million pinpoints of light, each one a separate star. It was also nice to be in contact with air again. In an ice form, I was limited to how much air I could grab on to, and we droplets need oxygen to be truly healthy. “You look happy, Tweedy,” Alice said. “You bet I am,” I replied. “I’m looking forward to being on the move and seeing more of this great big world. “I wonder if we will flow westward towards the Pacific or eastward towards the Gulf of Mexico” Alice mused. “Roger said that if we went east, we’d go to the Atlantic Ocean” I corrected her, “not the Gulf of Mexico”. “Basically, Roger was correct,” Alice explained, “but to get to the Atlantic Ocean, we must first go through the Gulf of Mexico. And then depending on the currents, we might have to go through the Caribbean Sea as well before reaching the Atlantic Ocean. It is a long trip to get to the Atlantic Ocean from here - unless of course, we go in cloud form and fly over those eastern mountains.”
