Book Review: Planting the Trees of Kenya


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. 

You can find my full review here at Fill in the Gaps Project.

I definitely want to read this book, and I'll give a copy to my son who has close friends in Kenya. I hadn't heard of it before, so thanks for featuring it!

Karen, maybe that is why it got on my list...I seriously have NO idea why I put it on that list to read. I'm glad I did, but it has made me laugh every time I think about it! =)
