On the Water theme-
There is a great illustrated children's book called "My Life With The Wave"
pretty sure that is the title. The author's name eludes me now but it was
written sometime in the last ten years on the crest of this renaissance in
children's literature we are experiencing. It's a very imaginative and well
illustrated story of a boy who takes a wave home with him after a day at the
beach and the wild and unpredictable events that transpire.

Water is a great focus-
Our planet has vast amounts of water on the surface.
Our bodies need water and are made up largely of water.
Clean water is precious to life.

"Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink"
Water into wine.
Baptism
Must watch the religious references in public school but there is strong
water imagery in just about every religion. Could get a bit thorny and
probably best not overly emphasized.
