Water Wise!

“This short volume about water acts as a good introduction to the reasons humans should worry about and better manage their water resources...Colorful images depict a wide range of places and cultures. Short but informative statements reinforce the reasons it is important to provide clean and drinkable water to the whole world...The book is very proactive, with practical tips for water conservation and links to organizations like UNICEF...This is a good small volume for upper-elementary and middle school students.” —National Science Teacher’s Association, 03/11
