Name: Planting The Trees Of Kenya
by Claire A. Nivola
Product Code: BCAN
Description:Item Number: BCAN 
Product Detail:Wangari Maathai, winner of the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize and founder of the Green Belt Movement, grew up in the highlands of Kenya, where trees cloaked the hills, fish filled the streams and the people tended their gardens. But over many years, as more and more land was cleared, Kenya was transformed. When Wangari returned home from college in America, she found the streams dry, the people malnourished, and the trees gone. How could she alone bring back the trees and restore the gardens and the people?

With glowing watercolor illustrations and lyrical prose, Claire Nivola tells the remarkable story of one woman’s efforts to change the fate of her land by teaching many to care for it.

The reading level is appropriate for children ages 6-10.

Winner of the Simon Wiesenthal Center's and Museum of Tolerance 2009 “Once Upon a World” Children's Book Award.
