The Water Princess
Water, water, nowhere!
Gie Gie believes she is the princess of Africa who can command everyone in nature to do anything barring water. But, unfortunately, water never listens to her command to come closer or stay cleaner for her to enjoy.
Every morning, her mom wakes her early to start their journey to fetch water to a faraway land under the scorching sun. When they reach a pool of brown water, mom collects them for her and Gie Gie and sets back home by the evening. But, as the land’s princess, Gie Gie wishes for something that can change her world.
We picked this book based on a recommendation. The book describes the struggle to access water for many across the world. It provides hope for those who struggle for water and teaches its value to those with easy access. The illustrations portray the land’s beauty and people’s life beautifully.
The Water Princess by Susan Verde is a must-read story that wholeheartedly represents the life of those people without access to clean water.
