Based on the life of Gerogie Badiel’s life, this book shows the journey some women and children take every day. They travel unbelievable amounts of miles to get only a few gourds of water to cook, clean and bathe in. This is not something people did "once upon a time" in a land “faraway” or in some dystopian land of fiction. This is happening today. Despite the tragic nature of why they must take this journey, this is a sweet story about a young girl and her hopes and dreams. Classically Peter Reynolds, the illustrations tie it all together. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
