“Weaving facts about water and the need for water conservation into a lively and inspiring poem, George Ella Lyon contrasts the abundance of water in some places with the complete lack and need of it in others throughout the world. With Katherine Tillotson's stunning art work, this book becomes a must-read for everyone!”
-- David Richardson, The Blue Marble, Fort Thomas, KY


Description

Faucet
            well
raincloud 
            sea …

from each of these
comes water.

But where does
Water go?

To find out, honey,
turn the page,
dive in 
    with tongue 
          or toes, 
with eyes and ears and nose—
and wonder
at the flow
of this great world’s
life story.
