Reading Level: 6
Interest Level: 5-8
Water is an essential element of life. We need it for our crops, for drinking, and for cooling off, but we often take it for granted. However, as Earth's climate changes in response to human activity, our relationship to water will also change. This book examines the history of droughts in countries all over the world, feuds related to water shortage, and innovative technological solutions that could help more people have access to water. Readers will learn about solutions as seemingly strange as dragging glaciers to Africa alongside practical ways to waste less water, like xeriscaping yards and collecting rainwater.
