Summary
"Anna fetches water from the spring every day, but she can't carry it on her head like her older brothers and sisters. In this charming and poetic family story set in Jamaica, Prize-winning author Olive Senior shows young readers the power of determination, as Anna achieves her goal and overcomes her fear."--Publisher
Summary
Anna wishes she could carry water on her head like all the rest of the children. But she is too small. She follows the children to collect water every day, but she must carry her small can back with her hands. Her mother encourages her to be patient, that she will learn when she is ready. Facing her fears one day, Anna finds that she has grown up and can now carry water on her head like the all others in this story of determination and courage.
