WOMEN'S RIGHTS ACTIVIST & ENVIRONMENTALIST
Seeds of Change: Planting the Path to Peace
by Jen Cullerton
Seeds of Change is not only a biography of the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Wangari Maathai, but it is a Coretta Scott King Award winner. This book is straight to the point, not wasting a word, but emits a huge encouraging message on how it is the little things that people can do to create a huge change. Wangari was a young girl who grew up in Kenya, Africa who was actually allowed to go to school. As a young child she was taught a respect for nature and excelled greatly in her science classes. After studying in the U.S., she returned back to her native land and used her knowledge to teach women and children how to plant trees. She advocated for the women in her country as well as encouraging environmental awareness for her people.
In this vivid children's picture book, it teaches children that even a small thing like a seed can make a huge change. One must remain diligent and help educate others. I would definitely recommend this book as a read along. It would be exceptionally fun to read during Black History month.
