Well, What's All the Drilling About? by Andrew Stone and Jessica Bryan is a well-witten book for children which clearly explains the process, and importance, of obtaining water for a new home. The illustrations by Rachel Pender, who was a student at Merrimack Valley HS at the time she created them, add greatly to the story. This is a book which will help young people understand the importance of one of our most valuable resources.

Leaving Mother Lake by Yang Erche Namu. A biography of a young girl in the Moso country of remote China who leaves her home causing a scandal for her family. Learning about day to day happenings and the effects of the cultural revolution on her matrilineal society was fascinating.
In the Shadow of the Cathedral, written by Titia Bozuwa (NH writer), is a vivid recollection of the Nazi occupation of Holland during the Nazi occupation of World War II through the eyes of a ten-year old girl (Titia, herself). This is no ordinary memoir. Titia combines a solid remembrance of the feelings, scents, stories, sounds and adult happenings that affected her life during turbulent times. A great read for adults and for young students studying about World War II.
