Reviews From Around the World
“This definitely is a good read a loud that teaches children about how the world doesn't necessarily have the same amount of clean drinking water for everyone. Some people have to walk miles everyday just to get clean drinking water. The artwork was amazing and I definitely want to learn more about the foundation that was discussed at the end.”- Bookishrealm, Goodreads
