This brightly illustrated picture book tells the story of Nobel Prize winner and environmentalist Wangari Maathai and her quest to restore trees to Kenya. Author’s Note about the Green Belt Movement.
  NCSS | Jul 23, 2021 |
This book follows the true story of Wangari, an activist from Kenya who created the Greenbelt movement in response to the deforestation within her community. She grew up with lots of trees and animals in her village, but as she grew older and went away she came back to the exact opposite. She inspired woman in her village to plant trees all over to replace the damage from deforestation. I think this is such a cool book to incorporate into teaching. It follows a true story of a woman activist who inspired other woman in her community to rise up against the government against deforestation. She planted over 30 million trees in Kenya and helped women get payed for the first time in their lives. I think that this can be incorporated as a social justice piece within a classroom while talking about the impacts that civilization has on the environment. ( )

This is a fabulous story about an important woman in history, Wangari Maathai. She grew up in Kenya among the green trees and rich soil for gardening. She was an excellent student and earned a scholarship to college in America. She earned a Bachelor's and Master's degree in the biological sciences. When she returned to Kenya after college, the land was completely changed. The trees were gone and the land was barren. Trees had been cleared to build and new trees had not been planted. Instead of being discouraged and hopeless, Wangari decided to take action. She began planting new seedlings and as they began growing, she inspired other women to do the same. Even when they were ridiculed by men, they continued to plant. The idea spread and other villages began planting as well. As building continued, she began fighting to preserve trees and parks. Even as she found herself in jail, women continued planting until there were 30 million trees where once there were none. Wangari was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004 because of her action.

Wangari lives where there are a bunch of trees. She and her mom gather wood vegetables so they can cook. When Wangari grows up, she gets a scholarship to study in America, but once she gets back home, all the trees are cut down for buildings. She soon begins to plant trees so they can get firewood easily and not have to walk for miles and also so they can grow crops. The government does not agree so they lock her up. Women start talking about the trees and they plant over 30 million trees and soon Kenya is green again.[return][return]Reading Level: Primary[return]Genre: Biography

Wangari's Trees of Peace is an amazing true story of one woman who took a stand against the deforestation of her homeland in Kenya Africa and stemmed the encroaching desert. Thanks to her efforts beginning in 1977, there are now over 30 million trees growing, 6,000 nurseries and thousands of people whose income has increased because of her efforts.
In the classroom, this book could be used for multiple concepts: women's contributions, conservation efforts, and building a sense of community to name a few. The illustrations are bright and rich and the story is easy for children to follow along. ( )
