Reviews

"The tightly focused text moves quickly without sacrificing impact . . . Winter's images appear in framed, same-size squares on each page, creating a flat, frieze-like effect that pays off as Wangari's movement grows and the activities within each frame multiply--a powerful demonstration of Wangari's work."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This delightful picture-book biography of the environmentalist has engaging illustrations and accessible, succinct prose. . . . This book would be a superb choice for read-alouds or assignments."--School Library Journal, starred review "The compact story does offer a way into one of our less-limned Nobel Prize winners, and with adults to fill the gaps in, this could be an appealing introcduction."--The Bulletin "The ethics and outcome of the tale are not forced on the reader. Rather, it is told very gently--like any good story--and is brightly illustrated."--The Georgia Straight "Award-winning writer and illustrator Jeanette Winter's clear text and bold paintings (right) make it easy to imagine the story of Maathai and the women of the Green Belt Movement she started."--American Scientist " . . . beautifully illustrated and simply written for young children."--Sacramento Bee "Jeanette Winter's singular illustrative style is recognizable by the organic patterns and lively pastel hues . . . Scenes of crouching women planting tiny saplings . . . and, later, images of lush, bird-filled forests . . . celebrate [Maathai's] powerful vision."--Audubon Smithsonian Magazine, Best Books of the Year 2008
