Written by Catherine Barr

Illustrated by Christiane Engel

Water Protect Freshwater to Save Life on Earth Synopsis

Water is life! Freshwater bubbles, flows and floods with the most wonderful life on Earth - and all of us rely on it to stay alive. BUT today, because of pollution and climate change, it is becoming more and more difficult for people and animals to find the clean freshwater they need to survive. It's time to act! Water tells the story of freshwater around the world. Discover the history of water, how the water cycle works, learn about the different kinds of water and about the amazing variety of wildlife that freshwater is home to. Then find out what happens to water because of climate change and global heating; the importance of clean water for health; the worlwide problem of water pollution and the devastating impact of water shortage on children's lives and education. Catherine Barr challenges us to take action, to use water wisely and protect freshwater to save our planet.
