ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 22, 2019 – The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is celebrating World Water Day 2019 with the release of its first-ever children’s storybook, Why Water’s Worth It. This highly-anticipated book came from the positive response to the video PSA that was released as part of the WATER’S WORTH IT® campaign relaunch last October.

Similar to the video, this fun and engaging educational book features a little girl with a big story to tell! With her nose buried in her book, she guides readers through the world of clean water, how it’s 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.

To help small hands become big heroes, the book also includes a list of small ways to make a big difference and cool facts to explain why water’s worth it. It can be given as a special 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. From parents, to teachers, to water professionals around the world, this story will help you empower the next generation of water protectors.

It is also linked through where you can access other campaign merchandise and an online toolkit of free resources.

The print-on-demand, high-quality paperback can be purchased as a single order or at a bulk discount.
