      “Every Last Drop, Bringing Clean Water Home” is a book I fell in love with. The pictures are bright and show children and grownups from all over the world drinking, washing and dealing with everything water. I would use this book in science class when we study the water cycle and also when we discuss conservation and ways of keeping our water clean. I would start with a discussion about water and bring in the students prior knowledge. I work in a school that has a very high ESL and Newcomer [...]

      Most of us don't think about the journey our water has taken to reach our water faucets or toilets. This book, filled with colorful photographs and stories, provides some of the history behind wells, reservoirs, and waste water treatment plants as well as making clear the laborious process of hauling water home every day. In addition to receiving information about how water that is not clean can cause diseases and even death, readers will learn about young activists who are teaching their commun [...]

      SUMMARY: In the developed world, if you want a drink of water you just turn on a tap or open a bottle. But for millions of families worldwide, finding clean water is a daily challenge, and kids are often the ones responsible for carrying water to their homes. Every Last Drop looks at why the world’s water resources are at risk and how communities around the world are finding innovative ways to quench their thirst and water their crops. Maybe you’re not ready to drink fog, as they do in Chile [...]

      Very well written for the intended audience (4th-7th grade). Clear central ideas that are well developed. I read this in one sitting - not because it was gripping, but because it was intensely interesting and cohesive-there was a flow from idea to idea that kept me interested and intrigued. The author writes in the first person as though she is having a conversation with "you"--this might be appealing to this age group of readers.It would have been helpful to have a few more supportive graphics. [...]

      A person can live for weeks without food, but only a few days without water. The human brain is 75% water. Blood has even more water in it, and even our bones are 20% water. No wonder we need to drink so often! 97% of Earth's water is in our oceans (salt water = undrinkable) and most of what is left is trapped in glaciers and ice caps. Of all the water on the planet, only 1% is fresh water that plants and animals, like us can drink. Imagine all the water of the world in a four-liter (one-gallon) [...]

      For those who, through choice, go vacation camping or on longer adventures without running water, steps are taken as preparation in advance. There is usually the sure knowledge of being able to return to a facility or home to experience the luxury of easily accessible water. If you have ever had to live without indoor plumbing or even a water pump, you understand it is true comfort.Nothing could have prepared me for the wealth of information presented in Every Last Drop: Bringing Clean Water Hom [...]

      A very respectable read for children in mid and upper elementary grades, this book though short, covers alot of ground. It includes a table of contents, index and list of resources which would help with any research that might need to be done. The book is an interesting mix of water situations in countries around the world but also introduces various ideas to help make more water available. Thought provoking ideas about water conservation are also presented which hopefully will make readers in o [...]

      I'm so glad I was introduced to this book by reading Alyson Beecher's "Best Of" post for nonfiction picture books. I loved Michelle Mulder's conversational and friendly tone as she teaches all about the history of water, how various cultures get water, the struggle for water in various places of the world, and the calling us to action to conserve water and help others' get water. It's PERFECT for our #ReadWalkWater/Social Responsibility unit! Great photos, too.

    9. Ms Threlkeld

      This book is packed with interesting information about how water has been accessed and used for thousands of year's. The language is kid-friendly and engaging, the pictures represent many different cultures and locations around the world, and the author provides simple suggestions on how kids can have a positive affect on water usage. This would make an excellent classroom resource for intermediate grades and middle school.

      The Orca Footprint series is fascinating. This book was told with lots of pictures, personal stories, interesting captions that I kept sharing with my co-workers and family, and just overall made me more interested and knowledgeable about the history and current status of water usage. The bicycle book and the houses around the world book in the same series is just as interesting.

    11. PamPage

      Children and adults can learn a lot from this book about how water is used, where it comes from and some of the history of water usage. This would make a great non-fiction read aloud in the classroom as it is written in such an interesting manner with facts that will be new to many readers!

    12. Joellen Mccarthy

      Love this fact filled book by clean water advocate, Mulder. A very engaging NF text for all ages. Great for older readers to pair with a Long Walk to Water and or Ryan's Well. Also fabulous mentor text for writing that has creative chapter titles and subtitles with tons of voice.

    13. Edward Sullivan

      An engaging, informative mix of history, technology, environmental and conservation issues, and global initiatives, all appealingly presented.

    14. Sharlynn Boersma

      Good book that provides a lot of information about how water is used and obtained around the world. It depicts many cultural differences about how water is used around the world.

    15. Jo Oehrlein

      Children's book on the importance of clean water and its availability across the world. It's picture book sized, but has more content than a picture book.

    16. Carol

      Fascinating and very readable. Fabulous photographs and illustrations. This book is very informative and important to kids as well as adults.
