I love this book! Making kids aware of the importance of water to people and the planet and the challenges we all face in taking care of this precious resource is so important. Salvador Bentolila does a wonderful job of bringing his expertise and years of expertise to the subject. He explains the value and risks so well. A pleasure!!
I loved the book!!! So easy for any kid to read and more importantly truly understand the importance and impact that water has on everyone and everything around us. The illustrations and images were so relevant and conveyed so much. A great read I would recommend for any young child.
This is a great educational book for kids and adults alike. U.S. schools generally don’t teach the practical aspects of the world around us and this book illustrates the importance of water and how it affects us on a day-to-day basis.
It's easy to take water for granted, which has resulted in humans polluting and depleting it. Salvador Bentolila's book reminds us of its importance and risks, simply and colorfully. Children and adults can learn from it. -Josh Spodek, podcast host, This Sustainable Life
This is a great intro to a complex topic that makes water issues and facts easy to understand -- very cute and informative. Hopefully it inspires some future engineers to help us continue to work towards keeping our water abundant and clean!
