This book tells an inspiring story about a woman who made a difference! Perfect to share with a little one during women’s history month.

Wangari Muri Maathai was a young girl growing up in Kenya when her mother exposed her to trees and the beauty of the natural world. From this beginning, Wangari went on to lots of education. When she returned to Kenya after years in America, Wangari led a movement to create a greenbelt with many trees. It was quite an accomplishment and one that brought her recognition.

Now Wangari Muri Maatha’s story is told in a gorgeously illustrated picture book. This one belongs in home and preschool libraries. It shows respect for the earth and for what an individual can do.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
