Weednaelle Merline is an adorable five year old from the village of Bonette near Galette Chambon. She lives with her grandmother and has never been to school. Her grandmother had never thought it would be possible to afford to send her granddaughter to school because she has no source of income. However, when a friend told her about the school in her neighboring village of Galette Chambon, she decided to check it out! Several other children from Bonette go to the BGM school, and they all walk the long, rock road to get there each morning during the school year. Weednaelle’s grandmother hopes that they can join the group and her grandbaby can get an education. It will take them about an hour to make the trek to school each day, but they all believe it is worth it! Weednaelle looks forward to meeting new friends and learning how to read and write.
