Anna Carries Water
Written by Olive Senior and illustrated by Laura James

Anna fetches water from the spring every day, but she can’t carry it on her head like her older siblings can. Set in Jamaica, this charming and poetic family story by Commonwealth Prize-winning author Olive Senior shows young readers the power of determination, as Anna achieves her goal and overcomes her fear.
