A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park & Water Resources reaction

As I’ve been reading about the water resources, I have found it particularly interesting about the water cycle, and the many different ways water can go through it. This topic is very multilayered, with each water particle going through a very unique experience in their journey.
My perception of the water cycle before these resources, and specifically the video on the water cycle*, was water going through the ocean, evaporating into the clouds, then pouring down onto the ocean, and starting all over again. The resource showed the many different ways water can go through the water cycle, such as pouring down onto the earth and becoming groundwater, or being soaked up by plants and then evaporating from the plant itself.
