Fort Lauderdale, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/14/2015 -- Eleven year old Lexi Schwartzberg was featured in Sun Sentinel newspaper recently highlighting her new children's book focusing on the water cycle. The article by Alexandra Herrera, special correspondent, interviewed the popular author.
The Parkland Elementary School student recently published her first book, "Lily Droplet's Amazing Adventure: The Water Cycle." Schwartzberg's book tells the story of a droplet who experiences the water cycle for the first time and her fears along the way. The book started as a class assignment but soon took on a life of its own.
Her original assignment only had her writing a paragraph, but Schwartzberg wrote two and a half pages, and she went on from there. Lily really comes to life thanks to her aunt, Danielle Schwartzberg, who provided the illustrations.
"I just thought it would be cute. The idea popped into my mind about having a water droplet who experienced the water cycle for the first time." Schwartzberg said. "… I'm a huge Harry Potter fan; there's a character named Lily, and I just used that."
The book is aimed at children who are learning about the water cycle. "It's really cool because one of my goals in life was to get a book published as an adult," Schwartzberg said. "I'll probably write more, but it's kind of mind-boggling." Lily Droplet's Amazing Adventure: The Water Cycle (ISBN: 978-0-99629-331-0) addresses science topics that appeal to young children.
