The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind | William Kamkwamba, Bryan Mealer
post image
Pickpick

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba was what drove my heart to want to teach abroad. This novel will make you laugh, cry and have hope. This story is about a boy who over comes challenges and makes a huge environmentally impact on his town which is heard about all over the globe. I highly recommend this Biography (B). #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein This is a great book for AS due to this whole story being about the author himself!Attached is a lesson plan to illustrated how we can all dive deep in this story and into Williams life! https://study.com/academy/lesson/the-boy-who-harnessed-the-wind-lesson-plan.html. The UDL that aligns are 3.1 & 6.3 these both illicit further understanding through out the lesson. 1mo
haleyklein My EL strategies are 6 & 29. These will allow for more support and better understanding through out the lesson! 1mo
Jewelwinkler I‘ve heard great things about this book and like you said it would be perfect for an author study. 1mo

Mehso-so

I‘m not the intended audience for this one but it managed to fulfill both the #DiverseMiddleGrade prompt for #Booked2019 AND #Malawi for the #ReadAroundTheWorldChallenge- plus it was available through #KindleUnlimited! I liked the details of daily life in Malawi, there wasn‘t enough there to overcome the more problematic parts of the plot. I expected the heavy-handed Sunday school lessons, but everything with the father made me uncomfortable

Cinfhen Sorry it wasn‘t a total pick but at least you got a #doubledip 1mo
TorieStorieS @Cinfhen indeed!! 😁 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Good job, even if was just so-so. ♥️📚👊🏻 1mo

I chose this book for my Malawi read as the author is credited as the 1st published female writer from Malawi.

In terms of story this is a simple tale of a man who wants it all & a woman who won‘t put up with him. He regrets the way he treats her but she accepts she is better of without him.

I liked details about local food, courting traditions, superstitions & education.

Chief's Bride | Desmond Dudwa Phiri

Pickpick

A short play by DD Phiri, an author and historian from #Malawi who passed away earlier this year. Published in 1968.

This is the story of the young chief from a traditional village, who chooses a bride & is somewhat blindsided when she declares she wants a ‘democratic marriage‘. With themes of entitlement, respect, equality, democracy & listening to your young people (they have a point!) it feels disturbingly current. #readaroundtheworld

Tamra That sounds like something I want to read. 2mo
batsy This sounds really interesting. And a lovely edition! 2mo

Hello world readers September is now upon us (how did that happen) and we are off to Malawi 🇲🇼 I have chosen to read the ragged book by the first female Malawi writer to be published.

Who will be joking me and what will you be reading?

RachelO Interesting find! I‘ve been wanting to read this since I first heard of it, so I‘m going nf this month. And it might fit with #ScienceSeptember as well. 2mo
Simona @RachelO My pick is also The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. 👍 2mo
RachelO @Simona 😊👍. Although I discovered this morning I also have this on order - Sometimes I think I reserve books in my sleep!! 2mo

Congrats on the milestone, and thanks for the giveaway @Megabooks 🎉🎉!

The tagged book is one of my favorites of summer 2019. I‘ve read a lot of middle grade with Maya recently for our #motherdaughterbookclub, and I really loved this Young Reader‘s Editon.

Megabooks This looks interesting! #stacked Thanks for entering! 3mo

This is the summer reading book for Maya‘s middle school, and what an excellent choice! I‘m currently reading another book about the importance of resilience and grit, both of which William has in spades! A powerful story about never giving up and thinking creatively...even when people think you‘re crazy.

#nonfiction2019 - this could fit 3 prompts: uplifting, from another country or survival; I‘ll pick which one later.
