Synopsis

One Well The Story of Water on Earth by Rochelle Strauss

One Well is an in-depth look at the role of water on Earth, the water cycle, and threats to the global supply of water. All water on Earth is connected, so there really is just one source - one global well- from which we all draw our water. All living things depend on Earth's One Well. Life would be impossible without it. But the water in the Earth's well is threatened by our growing population and increased demands. What can we do to protect it? One Well answers this important question while telling the eye-opening story of water on Earth. Its call to action shows how every one of us has the power to conserve and protect our global well.

Reviews

One Well is much needed drink for those of us thirsting to help protect our planet's threatened water supplies. Appropriate for children of all ages, this richly illustrated book provides valuable perspectives on the sources of water, value to all living things, present threats and constructive suggestions for water conservation. ean-Michel Cousteau, Founder and President Ocean Futures Society, Inc. One Well is a brilliant contribution to the United Nation's International Decade for Action 'Water for Life' -2005 to 2015. This beautifully illustrated and wonderfully written book should be read and acted upon by every family member. I would also hope that it would someday be available in every school library in the world as the message it brings is so critical to all humans and indeed all life on the planet. Charles Hopkins, UNESCO Chair Reorienting Teacher Education to Address Sustainability, and UN University Chair for Education for Sustainable Development 'Appealingly designed and with enticing illustrations, stimulating facts and a clear and lively account of the various processes and issues involved, the boolk is chatty without being didactic. A great starting point for encouraging children to think widely around an important subject'. The Guardian (December 2007) 'There is a strong conservation message, and clear facts and figures which prove an uneven international use of this life-giving resource. But those warnings are articulated within beautifully illustrated stories and facts about where water is found, its cycle, its properties and its uses.

'This is a good book with many links and a wealth of information to add to topic work...illustrations are clear and colourful, giving an excellent view of life in other areas.'

'There is much of interest in this well-illustrated and forceful book and I recommend it for family reading.'
