What do you do when the little sister who accompanies you all the way to the remote water hole falls ill and cannot make it home? You make hard choices and set small goals. There’s a lot packed into this simple, poignant tale, both a lovely accompaniment to A Long Walk to Water and a solid stand-alone picture book. A story of building character, compassion, and hope. Highly recommended.
