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, or use water made from treated sewage, but you can get a low-flush toilet, plant a tree, protect a wetland or just take shorter showers. Every last drop counts!

This book tells you a lot about how thankful you should be for having this thing called water and it also tells you thankful you are

This book taught me a lot about why we should never take water for granted and even though we have all we need people in other countries don't. This book had great pictures and over all was a great book.

this book has a very good message of not wasting water because you might have water every day but lots of people have to run millions of miles just to get water

this book ,(every last drop) is a really good inspiring book to help children know that in many country's there is no water to drink. That book inspired me by convincing me to take a 15 minute shower every day and dont play in the shower/bath tub. These people that don't have water haft to dig wells to get water or go to far places like rivers and streams to get water. I learned that in different countries they have different filters. Well, read the book to find out !✨

This book is kind of boring, but if you would like to learn about water in different countries, you should read this book.
