Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4–6—Mulder's latest addition to her solid repertoire of environmentally conscious books addresses the crises (pollution, shortages, etc.) of the global water supply. Her conversational style keeps the material from being too clinical or gloom-and-doom, without ever seeming superficial. Ideal for reports, the book is packed with great information on everything from the way civilizations have collected and used water throughout history, sobering assessments of the present and future availability of clean water, and intriguing solutions already employed, such as fog catchers, or that are still in their experimental stages. Worthwhile factoids, sidebars, and interesting photographs accompanied by instructive captions add to the abundance of meaningful material. Mulder is honest about the emergency unfolding around this precious resource, and though the situation is fairly dire, she empowers her readers by offering feasible suggestions that individuals can use to improve things. And like raindrops falling into a collection barrel, each and every single conscientious action adds up. An excellent resource on the topic.—Alyson Low, Fayetteville Public Library, AR

From Booklist

As with her previous titles about sustainable transportation and energy, Mulder begins this book by relating her personal experience with the topic, including a severe illness after drinking contaminated water in Peru. She then looks at the management of clean water and sewage throughout history, from the earliest wells in Cyprus to the Minoans’ first flush toilets (unfortunately forgotten when they were conquered by the Mycenaeans). Other loosely related chapters examine how clean water is delivered to North American homes; natural ways, such as wetlands, that the environment cleans water; and global innovations to collect fresh water and remove microbes, poisons, and salt. Young people will be amazed by the global initiatives: filtering arsenic-contaminated water in Bangladesh with iron nails, harvesting fog to gather fresh water in Chile, and more. Catchy “Go with the Flow” headings, startling water facts, and color photos of children collecting and conserving water around the world make this high-interest reading. Grades 4-7. --Angela Leeper
