Caroline, a blogger who writes posts on her blog Children’s Books & More recently wrote a book review of The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. I found it an interesting read and thought that I should share it.
Caroline writes mostly book reviews in her blog, but occasionally writes personal posts as well. Know more about the blog here.
The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind
by William Kamkwamba and Brian Mealer
Non-fiction, 288 pages
I really enjoyed this book and thought it was inspirational. The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind was the selected book during the Tacoma Reads Together Program which started briefly after 9/11.
