The Wheel on the School
Why do the storks no longer come to the little Dutch fishing village of Shora to nest? It was Lina, one of the six schoolchildren who first asked the question, and she set the others to wondering. And sometimes when you begin to wonder, you begin to make things happen. So the children set out to bring the storks back to Shora. The force of their vision put the whole village to work until at last the dream began to come true.

I have a fairly dim recollection that this was read to me as a child. My recollection is that it was read in school, but since we had this copy when my brother and I were very young, it may be that my mother read it to us. At this point all I remember is that the wheel was for storks to nest on. Read full review

I haven't read this one in a while, but I read it quite a number of times growing up. I remember it being rather slow in parts, a bit superstitious in regards to the storks being good luck, but an all over good story. Read full review
