Planting the Trees of Kenya by Claire A. Nivola
This is a great little picture book about Wangari Maathai, first African woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004. This was on my FitG list, and I need to make a confession...I'm not sure why I put it on the list. With that said, though, I enjoyed it and learned something new. So, it was NOT a waste of time.
