Nanou's Promise: A Journey Beyond Hauling Water
Nanou wants to paint, just as Grandma Kaye does, with a painting feather. But Grandma says Nanou must go to school before learning to paint. “How can I go to school when I spend so much time hauling water?” Nanou wonders. See how she plots a way to get clean water close to home so that she has time to attend school and learn to paint with a feather just like Grandma.
