Synopsis
Wherever we live in the world - whether our country is rich or poor - water is vital to our survival on this planet. This book follows the daily lives of six children from Peru, Mauritania, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Tajikistan and California and explores what water means to them. Where does it come from? How do they use it? With the growing threat of floods and droughts occuring throughout the world due to global warming, this book invites discussion on these topics as well as documenting the ways different countries and cultures value this most precious of our planet's natural resources.

Stunning photographs enhance the high quality of this terrific book, published in association with Oxfam... Global warming and ecological melt-down are topics now being discussed in clasrooms up and down the land, and teachers will find this title very useful as it examines the way that different countries of the world value water. || Numerous color photographs show each child helping at home, washing up and brushing teeth, and working in the yard or field, and complement the clearly written text to demonstrate the similarities and differences in these children's lives.
