Read full description of the books Seeds of Change: Planting a Path to Peace:A while back I read a couple picture books about Wangari Maathai, including Planting the Trees of Kenya: The Story of Wangari Maathai and Wangari's Trees of Peace: A True Story from Africa, and I loved them both, and I’m interested in reading her autobiography and her book about the Green Belt Movement, and any biographies about her, but for now I found this new to me picture book, published in 2010. This is by far my favorite of the books I’ve read so far.
The illustrations are so special: lush, gorgeous, wonderfully colorful, extremely appealing style, and befitting of the subject matter. Most importantly, while the story was superb in its own right, these illustrations enhanced the story to the point where I know I enjoyed it more just because of the illustrations. They’re truly brilliant. I’d love to have these pictures on my walls; I’d like to be able to view them over & over.
The story was told in an interesting, informative, entertaining, and clear way. Just great!
Between the pictures and the biography, I was deeply touched. I knew quite a bit about Maathai but I felt as though I still learned some things about her and the Green Belt Movement.
I just reserved the fourth picture book about Maathai I have on my shelves, Mama Miti: Wangari Maathai and the Trees of Kenya, ], and I hope to get to the two books on my shelves that she authored.
Maathai and the Green Belt Movement are inspirational.
