Summary: As a young girl in Kenya, Wangari's mother taught her to respect nature. Wangari grew to love the land, plants, and animals that surrounded her-from the giant mugumo tree her Kikuyu people so revered to the tiny tadpoles that swam in the river. Though most girls in Kenya were not educated, curious hard-working Wangari was allowed to go to school. There her mind sprouted like a seed. Blazing a trail in the field of science, Wangari used her knowledge and compassion to promote the rights of her countrywomen and help save the land, one tree at a time. Seeds of Change brings to life the empowering story of the first African woman, and environmentalist, to win a Nobel Peace Prize. Detailed narrative and vibrant images paint a robust portrait of this inspiring champion of women's rights and the environment.
