"What makes this video so spectacular is that it tells the story of water and its importance through pictures and music, and it is aimed at an audience aged 2 to 5. Water contains images of oceans, mountains, lakes, streams, swamps, deserts and rivers from around the world. This photography is spellbinding, as is the animation, combined with live shots to explain the cycle of water, from clouds to rain or snow to rivers to the ocean and back again.
All manner of water recreation and commerce are shown, as well as water's protective qualities in the simple observance of a fire hydrant.
The pictures are supported, and the action moved along, by a breathtaking score that on occasion will remind parents of the theme music from "2001: A Space Odyssey."
The power of water is amply demonstrated by the crashing surf along a rugged beach in the Pacific Northwest and the turning of the waterwheel of an old mill, the liquid pouring down the penstock with might.
This video has earned a spot on KidVids' top 10 list, for sure."
