This is another entry in a series of illustrated biographies for beginning chapter book readers. Each book tells the story of an inspiring woman. This time readers meet young Wangari and watch her grow up to do amazing things.
Wangari grew up in a beautiful Kenyan countryside where her mother’s stories and acts taught Wangari to love and respect nature. Wangari eventually left home to obtain further education. When she returned to her community, she found that the environment was under severe stress due to deforestation and more. Be inspired by what Wangari goes on to do in light of this. She even wins a Nobel prize.
This book would be an asset to home and school libraries. Hopefully, young readers will learn even as they are entertained.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Rebel Girls for this title. All opinions are my own.
