Around the world, people drink water. Nuanced photographs highlight people drinking water from a burlap bag in the Simpson Desert, Australia to collecting glacier run-off in the Rocky Mountains, Canada. With her simple, lyrical text, Barbara Kerley weaves our different ways of accessing water into a single refrain of a cool drink of water.
For children, to see water drawn from a lake in China, pumped from a handle in Thailand or stored in clay pots in Oman, expands vocabulary and knowledge of the world around us. The back pages give information about the place and people in each photograph. An essay on water conservation is also included.
