Where Do Rivers Go, Momma?
by Catherine Weyerhaeuser (Author / Illustrator)
Booktalk: Catherine Weyerhaeuser combines her talents as a geologist, educator, and illustrator to describe how water moves around the Earth.
Why are some places so wet and other places so dry, Momma?
Mountains can cause rain to fall in one place and not another. Warm, moist air that blows off an ocean onto a mountain range will cool as it moves up the mountain’s slope. As the air cools, the water vapor changes to water droplets, and it will rain and snow on the ocean side of the peak. Very little moisture is left by the time the air reaches the other side.
