    The Dine (Navajo) woman profiled in this picture book is Darlene Arviso, but she has earned her handle as THE WATER LADY. The story of her role in providing clean water for those on her reservation without access is launched through the eyes of a young Dine boy who wakes to the realization that there will be no water that morning- not for him, or his dog or chickens, or his grandmother and family. Despite using less than a tenth of the typical daily quantity used by most of this nation (a hundre The Dine (Navajo) woman profiled in this picture book is Darlene Arviso, but she has earned her handle as THE WATER LADY. The story of her role in providing clean water for those on her reservation without access is launched through the eyes of a young Dine boy who wakes to the realization that there will be no water that morning- not for him, or his dog or chickens, or his grandmother and family. Despite using less than a tenth of the typical daily quantity used by most of this nation (a hundred gallons or more PER PERSON, PER DAY) their supply has been used up. But readers follow the very busy WATER LADY, who first uses a school bus to deliver kids to classes, then switches to a tanker truck which she filled with clean water and delivers home-to-home on challenging and distant routes. There is so much to enjoy in this story, which has a compelling but steady pace and satisfying conclusion. Even so, the reality is that people must face the consequences of pollution, climate warming, waste, and lack of resources. The warmth of these individuals and their particular stories elevates an important book to one of significance on many levels.

    The true story of a remarkable woman, Darlene Arviso, who delivers water to 220 Native Americans on the Navajo reservation each month. It was humbling to read about the number of homes and families who still don't have access to fresh water and rely on this water to be delivered and the fact that these families are using 7 gallons of water a day compared to the average American who uses around 100 gallons a day.
