Harnessing the Wind
The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer, illustrated by Elizabeth Zunon is a book about one boys dream. The art was created by using oil paint and cut paper. The story is a true story about William and his country, Malawi's famine. He built a windmill out of scrap pieces and powered light bulbs for his home. He built another windmill to water the garden so his family would have food. It is a beautifully illustrated and heartwarming story.
