Many of us are aware of the clean drinking water crisis in the world today. Millions of people in the world don’t have access to clean drinking water and with that come a whole host of issues. How as concerned people who want to love our neighbors teach others about these issues. For many of us we blog about it, we contribute, we promote causes within our circle of family and friends, we might talk about it at church but what do we tell children?

Well author Ariah Fine has written a children’s bo

My three year-old loves this book. He's drawn to the bright, clean illustrations and has easily connected with the children in the story. I appreciate having a story that addresses issues of poverty and social justice in a way that's developmentally appropriate-- and hopeful.

I think the best thing I can say about the book is this: My son has connected with it strongly enough that Elirose and the actions in the book now show up in his imaginative play. It sure does this parent's heart good to he

I loved this book - it teaches children to be aware of what might be happening globally, not to take for granted all of the resources/luxuries one might have here in the states...and to take action! Anything that can encourage baby activists, I am going to love! Definitely a good book for the kids in your lives (the questions and activities in the back of the book were a nice touch - moving from the story to action)!
My three year old really liked this book because it helped to connect him with kids from different places in the world. He asked a lot of questions after reading this book, and we were able to have some good conversations. This is one that we intend to buy for birthday gifts for friends of our kids!

Excellent book for teaching young children about the problem of accessing clean water in the third world.
This is a great, easy to understand book for children that teaches them that although they have lots of good things to drink, it's not the same all over the world. I like how the book gives suggestions for families of how they can help those who lack clean water.
This is a great little book if you want to introduce your kids to the idea of impacting the world around them. The idea that they, even as little people, can help someone else. The website has a downloadable coloring page version of the book too.
A wonderfully written book offering awareness to kids of clean water needs in the world. Includes practical tips for children to go beyond the book and respond!
