The smoke from the fire makes breathing difficult for his mother and baby sister, and it's even making them sick. Hearing them coughing at night worries Iqbal. So when he learns that his school's upcoming science fair has the theme of sustainability, Iqbal comes up with the perfect idea for his entry: he'll design a stove that doesn't produce smoke! With help from his teacher, Iqbal learns all about solar energy cooking, which uses heat from the sun to cook --- ingenious!

An informative and creative picture book that describes Iqbal's concern for his family's well-being transform into an inspiration to build his own cooking stove. The author has definitely made their research and has simplified it in a manner that children will still remain engaged in the reading. The book provides wonderfully drawn pictures and facts on air pollution that may surprise them. I would recommend this book in a middle school science classroom as a fun introduction to air pollution and its effects on the environment. ( )

This is a book about a boy that enters a science fair. His family usually cooks outside except on rainy days, but the smoke fills their house and bothers the baby. Iqbal ends up winning the fair and is able to help his family.

Monsoon season is among Bangladesh and everyone must stay sheltered, that includes cooking over an open flame inside. The smoke from the flames fill Iqbal's family house making his mother and the baby very ill. Iqbal's school has a science fair coming up and he gets the idea to invent something that will help the family, a smokeless stove. He knows that if he wins the science fair he will win the cash prize and be able to help his parents afford a gas stove, which does not produce smoke, therefor will not make his family sick. After researching stoves with his sister, he is ready to invent a "solar cooker made from an old umbrella". They knew everyone had umbrellas since it was monsoon season! Together, they create this using an umbrella covered in foil. To Iqbal's surprise and joy he wins the science fair and helps the people of Bangladesh and his family as they are now able to buy the gas stove!

Iqbal lives in Bangladesh. It’s monsoon season, which means that his mother must cook inside over an open fire. The smoke is making his mother and baby sister ill. When Iqbal hears about the science fair, he thinks of many ideas, but his ultimate idea is to design a stove that doesn’t produce any smoke. His sister Sadia helps him as his assistant, and they create a stove that uses solar energy. He ends up winning first place and uses the winnings to buy his family a propane stove. Good book about creativity, innovation, and sustainability. I thought this book was non-fiction and was excited to read it. However, it is fiction, but still a good read. ( )

This story is so realistic, I had to check to make sure it wasn't a biography. It is about a boy who enters a science fair with a project that helps both his mother and the community. There is a project at the end readers can try. ( )
