Description


Un alegre libro de la aclamada autora Margarita Engle en el que cuenta cómo una niña y su comunidad celebran la llegada del aguador, que los visita semanalmente para distribuir agua al pueblo.

Los días del agua son días atareados,
días agradecidos, días risueños,
días sedientos.

Un pequeño pueblo ya no tiene suficiente suministro de agua, pero una niña y sus vecinos reciben la ayuda del aguador. Cuando él viene al pueblo, el agua fluye como la esperanza para toda la familia, y todos celebran su llegada.
