All About Water is an informative, fun illustrated book that tells the complete story of water through two fictional characters, cousins Mike and Mac Ro. Mike Ro is not interested in the big picture of water, while Mac Ro advocates for planet earth and does his best to educate Mike.  Their interactions are taken from life and share the important story of water conservation, home design for water efficiency, and a bit of water history with a peek into typical municipal water management practices using humor.Readers get a broad look into water that covers everything from efficient plumbing design to graywater reuse and how to pick the right water conditioner. Beyond practical tips, the book explores the value of water as a limited resource, touching on the importance of water conservation and the complexity of municipal water management.All About Water is useful for the homeowner who wants to learn how to read their water bill, anyone concerned about the global water crisis, or those who fall somewhere between. This book has something for everyone! Praise for All About Water"All About Water" lives up to its title! For all those who have advocated for more efficient use of fine water resources, this book is an essential tool in the toolbox. -Mary Eggert, Global Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer at Global Water Works One thing that struck me about the book is its usefulness as a tool to teach young children about water conservation. The illustrations by Audrey Ly are fun, and young children would relate to H2Homie (the water guy), a cartoon, water drop appearing at the end of chapters with questions and facts to expand upon information. The anecdotes and illustrations throughout the book could easily be used to foster family discussions about water use and conservation awareness. Many helpful hints and facts are presented in illustrations to help children understand the importance of careful water usage. Having read many articles on conservation, I can say this is one of the more enjoyable reads on the subject I've encountered. I appreciate the author's enthusiasm for his subject and his desire to educate his readers. It is apparent this book is a work of love. Well-written and edited, it is quite entertaining for a book of this nature. Using the characters, Mac and Mike, throughout as examples of good and bad water usage renders the information easily attainable.-Kat Kennedy, Official Reviewer at OnlineBookClub.org After your Facebook live, my kids did an experiment to see how much water they waste when they leave the faucet on brushing their teeth.  They're in pre-school and kindergarten and were really surprised to find out how much water was in their glass that just goes down the drain! We have seen drought in California and all over the world.  This really helped us understand how important it is not to take if for granted or be lazy and waste water. The kids are much more aware of wasting water now, and so are we. I appreciate the great tips on plumbing design and gardening, too, they are very practical.  It's a great little book, I recommend it for families to share some good times together while learning something new.Via Facebook live session with the author, from viewer Sean G.
