Solar Story

2020by Allan Drummond

"A timely nonfiction STEM picture book about the largest solar power plant in the world and its impact on a nearby village. In his signature accessible picture-book nonfiction style, Allan Drummond tells the story of the Noor solar power plant in Morocco's Sahara desert by relating it to the everyday life of a schoolgirl in a small village next to the plant. As we see on a class field trip, the plant is not only bringing reliable power to the village and far beyond, but is providing jobs, changing lives, and upending the old ways of doing things--starting within the girl's own family. Blending detail-filled watercolors, engaging cartoon-style narration, sidebars, and an afterword, the author showcases another community going green in amazing ways." -- publisher
