Wangari Maathai: The Woman Who Planted a Million Trees - Franck Prevot

Native Kenyan Wangari Maathai wanted more than to dutifully and quietly marry and spend her life caring for her family, so she attended school and then studied further in the United States, where she was encouraged to return to Kenya to fight for women’s rights, democracy and the environment. Her mother always preached that “a tree is much more than its wood,” and returning Kenya to its forested beauty became Wangari’s passion. In Wangari Maathai: The Woman Who Planted Millions of Trees (Charlesbridge, $17.95), author Franck Prevot and illustrator Aurelia Fronty collaborate to create a beautiful portrait of this stunning woman. Ages 7-12. Renee Bosco
