Only the Mountains Do Not Move

By Children's Bookwatch

“Award-winning author and photographer Jan Reynolds presents Only the Mountains Do Not Move: A Maasai Story of Culture and Conservation, an extraordinary picturebook about the culture of the Maasai people in Africa. For centuries, they have regularly migrated with their herds of cattle and goats across thousands of miles in Kenya and Tanzania. Today, their traditional way of life is being threatened by overgrazing, and local wildlife is endangered or even on the verge of extinction. Only the Mountains Do Not Move reveals how the Maasai are facing these challenges by adapting new agricultural and conservation practices into their lives, while preserving their unique cultural heritage and traditions . . . Only the Mountains Do Not Move is highly recommended especially for community library children’s book collections.”
