main idea Earth has water problems and instead of wasting the water that your gonna use save it for the plants that needs HELP!. The appropriate age level for this book (watch over our water) would be 1-10... yeah i think that the illustrations improved on this book...This story was very interesting i think that all the young kids will learn something from thus book it teaches that wasting water is not good for the earth and that before you think about leaving the water running just drink a wate ...more

“Watch Over Our Water” is an incredibly informative book for children and adults. The information provided in the book is well-written for children to understand. I really felt like it was a print-version of Sesame Street. As a 25-year-old water conservationist, I was happy to learn something while reading. I will definitely implement the suggestion in my routine. The illustrations are cute, and I will definitely show this to my nephew and niece when they are old enough to understand.

The illustrations and colors are very beautiful. The idea to teach kids to watch over the water is admirable, but the content of the book is poor. I expected better tips, and to not flush the toilet if it is pee ("if it's pee, let it be") no way! unless the people in the house take seriously great amounts of water that the pee is almost transparent. Five stars for the illustrator, but just two for the author of this book.

This is a wonderful non fiction picture book. I love the practical nature. It is about a young girls journey to discover the importance of water and the need to conserve it. This book will keep children entertained while teaching at the same time.

The illustrations were well done. They will capture a child's attention and help keep them focused on the story.

Super cute, educational book on the conservation of water. The illustrations are cute and held my daughters attention while she learned what she could do to save the planet. Highly recommend for little ones.

'If it's pee, let it be?' Ew, gross.
Ours would be 'If it's yellow, let it mellow; if it's brown, let it drown!'

Love the illustration!
