The Wheel on the School is a favorite of mine from my days as a young reader. The curiosity of the school children and the introduction to life in Holland made a lasting impression on me. I love how the children set out to learn more about their question then work to find answers and a solution.

Well-written and engaging, this book is a treasure, completely deserving of its Newbery Medal. It’s set in a small fishing village in the Netherlands, and it’s fun to be immersed in that world. Ultimately, it’s a book about wonder—the wonder of the world around us, the power of wondering and asking questions, and the infinite possibilities when we work together to do something wonderful.
