Seeds of Change

By Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Reviews

In this beautifully presented picture book, Jen Cullerton Johnson tells the story of Wangari Maathai, a Kenyan environmentalist who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004 for her work in her country. Her Green Belt Movement had a profound effect on the land and on the people of Kenya. Sonia Lynn Sadler’s richly colorful illustrations provide a unique backdrop for this memorable book.
