Richard Stilgoe, is a British composer and lyricist. If you saw the musical Starlight Express or The Phantom of the Opera, you've heard his lyrics. A few years ago, he wrote set of songs for children about water and the problems children in developing countries face getting clean water. The songs are a great way to give grade schoolers a bigger perspective on the world. And the songs are fun to sing.
You can get the sheet music and download recordings from Water Aid.
