Everyone Needs Water and Water Needs Everyone Everyone Needs Water and Water Needs Everyone
Exhibition Creator(s) - Roshin Mathew
Earth is our home. We share this planet with billions of people around the globe and so it is important to work together to take care of our natural resources. The air, the land, and the water must be conserved, protected, and valued. The focus of this exhibition is water and its importance to cultures and countries. The characters in these stories courageously defend the rivers, lakes, and oceans that face harm. They learn the importance of taking personal responsibility for the world around them and discover that every action has an effect. The heroes and heroines of these books understand that they are connected to the earth and the earth is connected to them. From the birds that fly above, to the humans who float on top, to the fish who swim within the Earth’s water, each species needs this natural resource. Water matters to every creature who calls the Earth home.
