In this Picture book set in Africa, Alemitu and her mother walk for miles every day to collect water to drink. One day her mother leaves her with some people, and later a woman comes to take her with her to America where she will be her daughter. Here she learns to live quite differently, turning on a tap to get fresh clean water whenever she wants; but she always remembers where she is from, and imagines her mother at the other end of the water she sees in a huge puddle after a rainstorm. They are connected by water. Teacher's notes are available on the publisher's website.
