Budding engineer Min uses her skills to save the day in this Level E easy reader, perfect for Kindergarten students to read on their own!
Min wants to play, but Ann and Bess say it's too hot to do anything. Min waves a fan, but it doesn't help at all. What's a girl to do?
There's a pool, but it's empty—but clever Min finds a nearby well with some water in it. A tube, a hose, some glue, and a good idea later, Min builds a machine to draw water out of the well and into the pool.
Splash! Thanks to Min, all the girls can play in the pool!
