The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is celebrating World Water Day 2019 with the release of its first children’s storybook, Why Water’s Worth It. According to WEF, the book came from the positive response to the video PSA that was released as part of the WATER’S WORTH IT campaign relaunch October 2018.
Similar to the video, the educational book features a little girl with a story to tell. According to WEF, with her nose buried in her book, she guides readers through the world of clean water, how it is managed, and the importance of everyone working together to protect it. Written for 4- to 8 -year-olds but with appeal to readers of all ages, WEF uses rhyming text and more than 40 hand-drawn, original illustrations to present a simple explanation of a complex process while encouraging personal responsibility and thoughtful, “green” choices.
The book also includes a list of ways to make a difference and facts to explain why water’s worth it. According to WEF, it can be given as a gift, added to your home library, donated to a school or public library, or used as a public education tool for facility tours, classroom presentations, and in support of water awareness days and activities such as World Water Day, Earth Day, and World Toilet Day.
The print-on-demand, high-quality paperback can be purchased as a single order or at a bulk discount through www.e-WEF.org. It is also linked through www.WatersWorthIt.org, where you can find more information.
