Willow’s Second Chance: the story of an orphan well is a heartwarming story for second graders about a little oil well named Willow. Once busy and proud, helping power homes and journeys, Willow feels abandoned and sad when her oil runs out. As she starts leaking harmful substances, she wishes to be useful again. The Well Done Foundation arrives to adopt and repair her, giving her new life and purpose. Willow’s transformation teaches children about environmental care, teamwork, and the importance of each individual’s role in making the world a better place.
