Why did they specifically mention their children and animals?


Ramban: They mentioned animals, because animals need a lot of water, and children, so that Moshe should pray quickly, since children cannot survive at all without water. 1


See Ramban, , who briefly discusses (here and in Pasuk 5 [DH 've'ha'Sela']) the second incident where they had no water (in, Bamidbar 20:11).
