Solar Story: How One Community Lives Alongside the World's Biggest Solar Plant
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.
