Based in Central Malawi, a young man, who when his village is faced with drought and poverty, uses DIY methods to produce electricity for his family's home and whole village. William Kamkwamba does this by pieces together scraps found in a junk yard, including a bicycle to create a windmill. Through-out this book, we are also met with William's hardships, including not being able to pay for school and the hardships that come with little food and inflated prices. This book is a great reading for classes because it also students to gain many understandings. The use of creativeness and using what you have, not what you can buy. Through hardships, remaining hopeful and taking intuitive. ( )

A terrible drought struck a village in Malawi and the main character, William Kamkwamba's family lost all of the seasoned crops leaving them with nothing to eat and nothing to sell. William found a solution in a science book that was in his villages library and that solution was to build a small windmill for his village to have electricity in order for them to be able to pump water for the crops. This is a true story that is retold for a younger audience.
I could use this in my science classroom to have students read when we go over electricity and I can also read it as a read aloud when we have free time and I could have the students do a refelction writing. This book is alos good to have students learn about how people live and their culture in other parts of the world. ( )

This book is about a 13 year old boy that was thrown out of the school he loves when his family can no longer afford the fees. This didn't stop him because he loved learning so he snuck into the library and learned how to build a windmill to save his village from a famine. This story is based in Malawi. This book should be in your classroom for your students because this shows that even though he got kicked out of school it didn't stop him for learning which is what he loves. ( )
