A Cool Drink of Water

A Cool Drink of Water Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An Italian boy sips from a fountain in the town square. A hiker takes

a refreshing drink from a mountain stream. Black-robed women in India stride gracefully through a field with brass water jugs balanced on their heads. Whether they squeeze it out of a burlap bag, haul it home from a communal tap, or get it out of their kitchen faucet, people all around the world are unified by their common need for water. Barbara Kerley brings home this point simply and eloquently in this beautiful and educational picture book that combines striking National Geographic photographs with a poetic text to show how people in various cultures use and conserve the world's most vital resource.

National Geographic supports K-12 educators with ELA Common Core Resources.
