Seeds of Change

By Mother Nature Network

Seeds of Change is an excellent biography about Wangari, covering her eventual contribution to Africa as well as her childhood, her education, and even her arrest for spreading her peaceful message. It is written for 9- to 12-year-olds, but my 7-year-old absolutely gobbled it up. And my 4-year-old could not tear her eyes away from the vibrant, batik-style illustrations that fill every page. It certainly earned a place on our bookshelf. And I’m so glad that it reminded me of such a inspirational story. —Green Parenting on Mother Nature Network
