Keep cool: I love to drink water. Water is very healthy. I love when it's a hot day and I get a nice, cold glass of water. Water can also cool you off. If you have a water bottle, you can pour it on yourself!

Pool time: Pools are filled with water. Pools have slides — tall slides, fast slides, swirly slides, you name them. Pools are so great. I love them. I cannot wait until the pools open this summer. I want to relax under the sun and swim in the pool while getting cooled off.

Use water wisely: You can do a lot of things with water, but you must use water wisely. There is only so much water for all the people in this world, and some places in this world don't even have any fresh water. Some people take advantage of their access to water.

Play in the ocean: I had water all around me in the Bahamas. I played in the ocean with my family. I was able to be in the water with sea animals. Some of the animals I was with were dolphins, sharks and stingrays. I learned about sea animals and the ocean.

Racing sisters: Splish! Splash! That's the sound of me swimming, trying to catch up to my sister. In the pool my favorite thing to do is race my sisters. We go to State Farm Park to swim. We throw rings and discs and swim after them.

Make summer fun: If we didn't have water, then we wouldn't have a very fun summer. We wouldn't be able to play in the pool or the sprinkler, and we wouldn't have any flowers because they need water to live. We need water to live, too.

Wonderful waves: "Woo hoo!" I hollered. "I love waves!" When you are at the beach, there is absolutely nothing better than relaxing and waves. They are fun to swim in, and they provide a cool current. You may be thinking, "What else can you do in waves?" Well, I have your answer: boogie boards!

Key to survival: Water is very important. You can only survive two months without water. On a hot summer day you use water to cool off. A human body is 95 percent water. Water is used in lots of things; for example, hot chocolate has hot water in it.
