In this true story about a community living on a small island in Denmark, we see the power of perseverance when people are determined to make a change to improve their environment.  The island of Samso is very ordinary places, where people live and work, go to school, and play –just like you and me.  Their island home is in the middle of Denmark where it is very windy.  One day, a new teacher is given the job of getting everyone on the island to become more energy conscious and look for other ways to make energy instead of depending on  electricity and oil. This island has become very famous and has earned a new name, “Energy Island.”  What happened to persuade this community of ordinary citizens to accomplish this?  After reading this book, you will look at the wind in a very different way.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Awards Program Booktalks 2012-2013)
