How Big is your Water Footprint?

Mason, Paul. How Big is your Water Footprint? Marshall Cavendish Benchmark. 2010. ISBN: 978-0-7614-4417-6.

How Big is your Water Footprint? is about how much we are use water. It talks about ways we can conserve water in the garden, outside, and anything else in our everyday lives. It tells you how more and more people are using water, and leaving "heavy footprints" on the Earth. Also, it lists ways to leave a lighter water footprint on the Earth, and what could happen if we don't. The pictures in this book are all photos, relating to the ways to conserve our water. I personally like this book because it showed me many ways that I am overusing water that I could fix. It shows the effects we will someday have on Earth if we keep using so much water, which makes me want to save the Earth's water even more. I don't think there is any definite age group for this book, but it would probably be most interesting/helpful to grade school kids. It lists ways we overuse the water that are most common, so in a way, we can relate, even if it is just telling our parents about how much water to use when they wash the dishes, take a shower, or do the laundry.
