Wangari Maathai: The Woman Who Planted Millions of TreesWangari Maathai: The Woman Who Planted Millions of Trees by Franck Prévot
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First of all, the cover is beautiful. It was what made me pick up the book in the first place. The illustrations throughout is equally stunning.

What a life! Truly inspiring. Wangari worked for all the good things that happened in her life. I love that she continued to give back despite all the resistance.

A timeline and more are located at the end of the book.

    The cover is beautiful. A beautiful cover does much to get a book noticed on a shelf. I hope I get a chance to read this. Thanks for posting, Earl.

    I’ve read other books about her, & guess I’d better find this one, too, Earl. Too many are praising it! Thanks.

    Have you read Mama Miti too, Earl? That one is gorgeous too. I have to find this one – unfortunately it’s not available here yet in Singapore.

    She is fascinating and such an inspiration. I’ve read Nelson’s book about her, but I would love to read more! Thank you!
