The stories about his family were heartwarming and lovely. The stories about the famine were heartbreaking. But overall, it was inspiring and amazing to hear about how he overcome incredible obstacles and what work he was willing to put into making his dream become reality. Probably more of a 4.5 than a 4.

Kamkwamba has written his story for three age levels: adults, teens, and children. I heard about this book from a local high school English professor at my niece's middle school literacy night. The teacher was talking about the teen version of the book, but I decided to read the children's book with my son. We both enjoyed this true story. I don't read much non-fiction with him, but this story was engaging. The pictures help bring to life the story of William, who lives in Africa. When draught comes, his community isn't able to grow crops, and they must begin eating only one meal a day. William studies in the library and figures out how to make a windmill and generate electricity for his town. With the electricity, he is able to pump water up from the ground to help the crops grow. Stories about children making a difference are so inspiring. This book was well written and perfect for sharing with my 6 year old who is into inventing things at the moment.
