SUMMARY:

The New York Times bestseller A Long Walk to Water begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about two eleven-year-olds in Sudan, a girl in 2008 and a boy in 1985. The girl, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that is two hours’ walk from her home: she makes two trips to the pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the "lost boys" of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for a safe place to stay. Enduring every hardship from loneliness to attack by armed rebels to contact with killer lions and crocodiles, Salva is a survivor, and his story goes on to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.

A beautiful and inspiring tale of conflict and survival that will inspire young readers and adults alike. In 1985 southern Sudan is ravaged by war. Rebels and government forces battle for control, with ordinary people, like eleven-year-old Salva, caught in the middle. When Salva's village is attacked, he becomes one of the 'lost boys' of Sudan, traveling the African continent on foot in search of his family and a new life. Years later, a girl named Nya walks eight hours a day to fetch water for her family. The walk is gruelling, but there is unexpected hope, as Salva’s story goes on to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.

SUMMARY:

In this picture book companion to the bestseller A Long Walk to Water, a young South Sudanese girl goes on a journey that requires determination, persistence, and compassion. Young Nya takes little sister Akeer along on the two-hour walk to fetch water for the family. But Akeer becomes too ill to walk, and Nya faces the impossible: her sister and the full water vessel together are too heavy to carry. As she struggles, she discovers that if she manages to take one step, then another, she can reach home and Mama's care. Bold, impressionistic paintings by Caldecott and Coretta Scott King Honor winner Brian Pinkney evoke the dry, barren landscape and the tenderness between the two sisters. An afterword discusses the process of providing clean water in South Sudan, reducing waterborne illness.

SUMMARY:

An astounding tale of courage, belonging and endurance from a renowned storyteller. Tree-ear has a dream. He has watched the master potter Min take a lump of clay and shape it into a thing of beauty. For Tree-ear the transformation is a miracle. Someday he wants to perform such a miracle himself. But you cannot just walk up to a master potter and ask him to teach you his craft, especially not if you're an orphan like Tree-ear. First Tree-ear must prove he is worthy of Min's time and teachings. So he asks the honourable master if he can work for him, without pay, for the privilege of being near such talent. Tree-ear has taken his first step toward his dream. If Tree-ear takes it one hill, one valley, one day at a time, just maybe, he'll be able to make his dream come true. 'Readers will not soon forget these characters or their sacrifices.' Publishers Weekly Contains Linda Sue Park's 2002 Newbery Award acceptance speech.

SUMMARY:

Shortly after becoming a mother, Lindsey Andrews encountered a problem with childrens literature. While reading about rainbows and princesses was fun, Lindsey sought out literature that encouraged her children to engage their world, address social issues and help form solutions. After a trip to Ethiopia, she encountered a boy whose daily walk for water inspired Lindsey to tell her children, who were two and six at the time, about the global water crisis. They both were eager to help and through sponsorship and advocacy, this youg boy and his family now have access to clean water. The experience inspired "I Walk for Water," a children's book dedicated to those who daily trek to water and encourages the reader to help engage and bring change, with a portion of each book benefiting Water is Life, a non-profit nown internationally for its ability to provide life giving water solutions. Illustrated by Jerry Bennett, world renowned illustrator and scribble, "I Walk For Water" had a storyboard and went tonto print. Soon, "I Walk for Water" will become a documentary. Written, directed and filmed by the gorgeously talented, Lauren Selmon Roberts of "Rainbow Town" documentary fame. The film is tentatively scheduled to release in 2012.
