What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A paperback picture book based on the true story of Wangari Maathai, an environmental and political activist in Kenya and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004. As a young girl growing up in Kenya, Wangari was surrounded by trees. But years later when she returns home, she is shocked to see whole forests being cut down, and she knows that soon all the trees will be destroyed. So Wangari decides to do something—and starts by planting nine seedlings in her own backyard. And as they grow, so do her plans . . . This true story of Wangari Maathai, environmentalist and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, is a shining example of how one woman’s passion, vision, and determination inspired great change. Includes an author’s note.

This true story is inspiring. Wangari dares to do what hasn’t ever been done and inspires women to help her plant trees in Kenya. Parents might want to know that this story does mention about how she stood in front of trees to protect them from being cut down, and the government men beat her and put her in jail.
