Celebrating World Water Day


We will be celebrating water throughout 2021 and not just on 22nd March, the official World Water Day.

We have already received some great contributions from all around the world: 

Eva from Aberdeen, Scotland, draw us a picture, and also wrote, what water means to her:

Why is water important to me?
- drinking water keeps me healthy and hydrated
- I use it to wash my hands, have a shower or a bath, as well when brushing my teeth
- if there wasn't for water, I would not be able to go swimming
- we all use water in the kitchen, when we are cooking
- I can water plants and help them grow

Flor from Ljubljana, Slovenia, draw us a picture and said:

Water means all animals are happy, because they live next to a sparkling rainbow river.

While Josefina from Prague, Czech Republic, wrote:

As we can see in baptism, water is a purifying remedy. It's cleanliness itself. Or, as you know, it is the veins and energy of the nature. I personally came across the most surprising comparison of water personifying a teacher in the book Siddharta, by Hermann Hesse. 
So water can be a range of things. I believe that water is the most exciting element. We all came from it, and I mean both, evolution and birth. It gives life and energy. It can be flexible, impalpable, tough, gentle or cruel. It covers 71% of the surface of our planet, and we will never know what it is hiding!
Water in its innumerable forms (true or personified) is just, an excitement. 

To us, at Pipin's Book, water means life, whether it is to quench our thirst or whether its vividly sound reminds us of the beauty of our planet. 

And what does water mean to you?
