A Good TradeBook - 2012
In a small Ugandan village, Kato wakes early to start the long, barefoot trek beyond his village and along fields dotted with cattle and guarded by soldiers. His destination is the village well, where he will pump a day's supply of water into two jerry cans. But this is no ordinary day. The aid-worker's truck has come to the village square, and in the back is a gift so special, the little boy rushes home to look for something to repay the aid-worker.

Age 5 and up. In a place ravaged by a generation of civil war and drought, a village well brings life, a gift of shoes is a cause for celebration, and a simple flower becomes an eloquent symbol of peace and gratitude.
