Little Naturalists: Wangari MaathaiGibbs Smith
Introduce your brilliant baby to Kenyan environmentalist and women’s rights activist who was a crusader for planting trees, conserving forest land, and bringing democracy to her country. Wangari raised funds to pay poor women a small amount to plant and care for each tree. Her Green Belt Movement spread to many countries in Africa and beyond. And in 2004 Wangari won a Nobel Peace Prize! The first one given to an environmentalist and an African woman. Kate Coombs’ engaging story and Seth Lucas’ beautiful art bring Wangari Maathai to life for young readers, encouraging little naturalists to Be Adventurous and Be Creative.
