Wangari's Trees of Peace Hardback edition by Jeanette Winter
JEANETTE WINTER has written and illustrated many children's books based on true-life stories, including the highly acclaimed MAMA, The Librarian of Basra, and My Name Is Georgia. She lives in New York City.
Presents the true story of how Alia Baker, the librarian of the Basra library, and her friends managed to save the books of the library before the library was burned to the ground during the 2003 Iraq War.
As a young girl growing up in Kenya, Wangari was surrounded by trees. But years later when she returns home, she is shocked to see whole forests being cut down, and she knows that soon all the trees will be destroyed. So Wangari decides to do something - and starts by planting nine seedlings in her own backyard. And as they grow, so do her plans.
So distraught after her parents are taken away by the Taliban from her village in Afghanistan that she suddenly ceases to speak, Nasreen's grandmother enrolls her in a secret school for girls where compassionate classmates and devoted teachers give her the support she needs to regain her voice.
