Ladybug Nominee Profile

The Water Princess written by Susan Verde and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds was inspired by the childhood of Georgie Badiel. Growing up in Burkina Faso, Georgie and the other girls and women of her village (and lots of other villages) walked many miles each day to fill pots with water to drink, cook with, and bathe in. Through the Georgie Badiel Foundation and Ryan's Well she is working to change that.

This is one of the ten titles nominated for the 2017 Ladybug Picture Book Award.
