The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Young Readers Edition

Young Readers Edition

The New York Times bestselling memoir of the heroic young inventor who brought electricity to his Malawian village is now perfect for young readers
When a terrible drought struck William Kamkwamba's tiny village in Malawi, his family lost all of the season's crops, leaving them with nothing to eat and nothing to sell. William began to explore science books in his village library, looking for a solution. There, he came up with the idea that would change his family's life forever: he could build a windmill. Made out of scrap metal and old bicycle parts, William's windmill brought electricity to his home and helped his family pump the water they needed to farm the land.
Retold for a younger audience, this exciting memoir shows how, even in a desperate situation, one boy's brilliant idea can light up the world. Complete with photographs, illustrations, and an epilogue that will bring readers up to date on William's story, this is the perfect edition to read and share with the whole family.
Rezension
Praise for the Young Readers Edition:
New York Public Library's 100 Books for Reading and Sharing
"This is a fascinating, well-told account that will intrigue curious minds . . . An inspiring, incredible story."- School Library Journal , starred review
"Against astounding odds, Kamkwamba's eventual creation of a windmill to bring lighting to his family's home is nothing short of amazing. Compelling and informative for a broad readership and a good addition to STEM collections."- Kirkus Reviews
Praise for the original edition of The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind :
"William Kamkwamba's achievements with wind energy should serve as a model of what one person, with an inspired idea, can do to tackle the crisis we face. His book tells a moving and exciting story."-Al Gore, former Vice President and Nobel Laureate
"This is an amazing, inspiring and heartwarming story! It's about harnessing the power not just of the wind, but of imagination and ingenuity. Those are the most important forces we have for saving our planet. William Kamkwamba is a hero for our age."-Walter Isaacson, author of Einstein and Benjamin Franklin
"This book is inspirational. What William did took nothing more than initiative and a little learning, yet he changed his village and his life. There's never been a better time to Do It Yourself, and I love how much we can learn from those who often have no other choice."-Chris Anderson, editor in chief of Wired and author of Free and The Long Tail
