Water of goo by Penny Reeve is a fun book for primary school children about the availability of clean water. The main character, Tania, is a likeable girl whose enthusiasm sometimes gets her into trouble but she is a follower of Jesus with a good heart. Tania’s teacher encourages her to be involved in the ‘Water for the World’ march and initially Tania decides to get involved to impress her teacher. However her desire to serve Jesus, along with her contact with her Indian friend, Shanti, plus an embarrassing incident with a blocked toilet convince her of the value of the project.
This is an encouraging book for children to teach them that they can make a contribution and make a difference in their world.
