The Water Hole
When the Willowbee family goes camping, Clancy enjoys himself but for one thing: he doesn’t like limiting his use of clean drinking water. He prefers using the drinking water for bathing and washing his hands, and this creates tension with the rest of his family. Upon their return home, however, the willow tree takes the children to a very hot and dry place in the American Plains — where they meet a bison, a jackrabbit, a team of wild boars, and a troupe of prairie dogs who must figure out how to best share the water of a single water hole. Their solution gives Clancy something to think about.
This story focuses on the power of community when choosing to conserve water.
