Description

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 Mamas care.

An afterword discusses the process of providing clean water in South Sudan, reducing waterborne illness.

    This picture book companion to Linda Sue Park's novel A LONG WALK TO WATER is a great introduction and scaffolding for the plight of villagers in South Sudan and around the world who do not have access to clean water. With simple text and evocative illustrations, this book illuminates the journey of two sisters fetching the day's water, half a morning's walk away from their village. When Akeer takes ill on the way back, Nya has to carry her sister and the water all the way back, a feat she doesn't think she can do. But one step at a time she makes it happen.

    Not only would this be a great introduction to Park's novel, it's a story about perseverance and based on real events that happen in our world today.
