The Mangrove Tree

By School Library Journal

Susan L. Roth and Cindy Trumbore’s The Mangrove Tree describes how these trees were planted by local women-earning them much needed income—while the leaves from the mangrove trees feed Hargigo’s sheep and goats. Today these animals live longer, produce healthier and larger flocks, and feed the residents of Hargigo. In addition to Roth’s stunning, full-page color-saturated collage and mixed-media artwork, photographs of Dr. Sato and the Hargigo community at work illustrate this stunning book.
