When we turn on a tap, we expect to see clean, safe water pour out. This is not how everyone around the world gets their water, of course. Some children must walk miles each day to collect water for their families, while others bathe and help do their family’s laundry in a river. In Everybody Needs Water, young readers will find out how families around the world obtain and use this precious resource.

School Library Journal Review for My World Your World

As the series title suggests, this set invites readers to compare their own lives to those of a diverse group of children from all around the globe. The books focus on topics that are of interest and will be familiar to kids. Bright, attractive photos (often four to six per spread) are the strongest element. The texts are comprised of simple paragraphs with basic content and well-written captions, supplemented by circular sidebar insets. A “Where in the World” map locates all mentioned cultures. The tone is cheerful, but sections about children who lack safe food, water, or the opportunities afforded to American children will encourage readers to empathize with those who are less fortunate. These volumes introduce other cultures even as they emphasize the universality of the needs for shelter, clothing, food, education, and celebrations and play. VERDICT Strong choices for early readers.
