With its wide sky and warm earth, Princess Gie Gie’s kingdom is a beautiful land. But clean drinking water is scarce in her small African village. And try as she might, Gie Gie cannot bring the water closer; she cannot make it run clearer. She rises before the sun to make the long journey to the well. Instead of a crown, she wears a heavy pot on her head to collect the water. (Bill Martin, Jr. Picture Book Award, 2018)
