I read this book to my almost 4 year old daughter. She loved it. We live in Wisconsin so we are surrounded by the Great Lakes and she's know Lake Superior and Michigan. She had a lot of questions about using water and saving (conserving) water. She turns off the tap when she brushes her teeth now. The book is inspirational for kids.
