After her morning trip to the pond, Nya eats, and then turns around and walks back to the pond to fill her container again. When the pond dries up, the village moves to the Lake where the water has to be reached by digging. “A Long Walk to Water” is a powerful, gritty story that grabs you and compels you to read to find out what happens to Salva and Nya. The story threads finally come together in the end. This story is highly recommended for middle-grade students, ages 10-12. This book truly brings history alive in the classroom.
