More About Walter Wick

Walter Wick My mother says that when I was a child, I walked with a bounce. This must be true because I remember having a very happy childhood.Walter Wick bio pic I grew up in rural Connecticut with three older brothers and a younger sister. We loved exploring the nearby woods. I walked the neighborhood on stilts I made from tree limbs. I made them for other kids too. I also made skateboards out of old roller skates that I took apart and fastened to pieces of plywood. I loved to tinker and build.

My first serious interest in art began with drawing and painting in high school. It was then that my brother Robert, who worked part time at a camera store, introduced me to photography. I studied photojournalism and landscape bio Picphotography at the Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut. After graduating in 1973, I worked as a lab technician and product photographer in a commercial studio in Hartford. The work was not glamorous, but I was fascinated with the technical challenges of making the surfaces, shadows, and highlights look exactly right in the photographs. Before long, I moved to New York City and started my own studio. At first it was hard to find clients. The lack of work gave me time to explore new ideas and techniques, which resulted in a small, but effective, portfolio of seven images. One of these images Walter Wickcame about almost by accident. I was organizing screws, paper clips and other odds and ends. As I began sorting, I liked the way the objects looked spread out on my light box. After hours of careful arranging, I took a picture. This photograph of odds and ends was the spark that helped inspire the first I Spy book! But that would take another 10 years.

My new portfolio was a success and I was soon busy making photographs for magazines, such as "Psychology Today" and "Discover". I also made photographic puzzles for "Games" magazine. In 1985, the "Odds and Ends" photograph caught the eye of Jean Marzollo, the editor of "Let's Find Out", a kindergarten magazine published by Scholastic. She asked me to do a colorful photograph of fasteners for a poster. bio pic walter wick

This poster, in turn, caught the eye of editors in the Scholastic book division. In 1991, Jean Marzollo and I collaborated on I Spy: A Book of Picture Riddles. With the success of the I Spy, I've had opportunities to visit schools and see firsthand how kids respond to my work. It occurred to me that subjects that have long fascinated me, science and visual perception, are of interest to kids, too.

That led to my first two solo projects: A Drop of Water: A Book of Science and Wonder and Walter Wick's Optical Tricks. When my third solo project, Can You See What I See?: Picture Puzzles to Search and Solve debuted on the “New York Times” bestseller list in 2002, a new series of search-and-find puzzle books was born. In all the years I’ve been doing photography, I’ve never had a more appreciative audience than kids. I suspect I’ll be creating children’s books for a long time to come.

Walter Wick currently resides in Winsted, in the state of Connecticut. Walter Wick was born in 1932.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Just so wonderful!  May 25, 2008
If you have a budding young scientist in your circle, I strongly urge you to purchase A Drop Of Water as an inspiration to further learning in the arts and sciences. Walter Wick is an amazing talent, and all his books are worth your time and money.

The beauty of the photography is a wonder to behold.

Very highly recommended. You'll keep this book forever.
A perfect science picture book  Mar 27, 2006
Beautiful pictures and a wide variety of science related to water is illustrated. A thoughtful teacher grades 3-8 could easily construct a full science unit from this well constructed picture book.
Photographic wonder  Dec 18, 2004
This book is a must have for any school library or homeschool science collection. Wick is perhaps best known for his "I Spy" books but here he is demonstrating his incredible talent with a science subject. He captures the essence of a water drop, the nature of steam, the momentary existence of a soap bubble and a snowflake in exquisite beauty. He shows us what our own eyes cannot fathom. Use this book to teach and learn about the water cycle, states of matter or art appreciation. The book pairs wonderfully with "Snowflake Bentley" by Jacqueline Briggs Martin.
Really Descriptive  Nov 30, 2003
This helped me alot while performing my science project. It's cool to everyone I know no matter what their age was...
Excellent read-along for Classical Homeschoolers  Aug 25, 2002
I am doing 3rd grade chemistry based on the Well-Trained Mind. This read-along was excellent for our chemistry experiments on molecules, and I look forward to using it several times with the other topics it presents. The photos are absolutely stunning. Even though the reading level is higher than 3rd grade, the focus is on the photos - and they do a wonderful job of rounding out the student's grasp of the concepts. My husband and I both learned something new, and even the 6 and 3-year-olds are pointing out condensation and water vapor along with their third-grade brother.

Included in the back are suggested experiments for those who do nature study along the lines of Charlotte Mason's theories. Definitely a keeper.
