"I live on the western shore next to the Chesapeake Bay. One morning, all I could see was mud! 'Where did all the water go?' I asked my parents. They said not to worry, the water would be back. But that didn't keep me from worrying. I worried about all the people on the Eastern Shore being flooded. I worried and I worried. When I came home from school that day...." The answer to this child's puzzlement is contained in this charming story about a natural phenomenon that occurs on the bay. Early Readers: Ages 5-8.
