Book Suggestions

Some stories can be told for older readers as well as younger readers. For example, Wangari Maathai's memoir, Unbowed, is an excellent book for teachers and excerpts could be used with middle through high school students. Elementary teachers can use the picture books Wangari's Trees of Peace, Planting the Trees of Kenya, and Mama Miti to teach about Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai and her quest to solve environmental and social problems in her home country, Kenya.
