William Kamkwamba first encountered the magic that ruled Malawi when he was six. Herd boys found a  sack in the road; it was filled with bubblegum!  What a treasure!

Dogs may be considered “man’s best friend,” but a lot of girls (and guys) think horses should claim that honor. If you agree, you’ll want to take one of these books for a ride. You don’t need to own a horse to enjoy these magnificent animals. Visit a local stable for lessons or volunteer at a therapeutic riding center. And even if that’s not possible, you can certainly read about horses.
