They are on a soft grey-brown background that gives the book the appearance of a well-done scrapbook on recycled paper. Although the colouring is purely cosmetic, it is a nice touch. The photos, which are spread throughout the book, support the text and all have accompanying captions. There is a Resources section, but the books and movies listed are not very recent or comprehensive.
The web sites are more detailed for interested readers. The text is organized into chapters, with individual headings. This is one of the book's weaker elements.
Every Last Drop: Bringing Clean Water Home
The headings are based on puns or rhymes, an approach which makes it hard to decipher the content of each section. This will hinder ease of research use, which is disappointing as the content is good. There is a subsection called 'Go with the Flow' that tells interesting details about water usage that the author has witnessed during her travels.
These enhance the text nicely and will encourage readers to think about work that they can do to improve access to water around the world. There are also 'Water Fact' captions which include a fact not necessarily related to the text, but interesting nonetheless.
