She Persisted: Wangari Maathai

When Wangari Maathai learned about how many trees had been cut down in Kenya, where she was from, she was horrified. So she founded the Green Belt Movement and got friends, family, and even strangers to help her plant trees and respect the environment — and empowered women to earn their own money and support their families along the way. She even received a Nobel Peace Prize for her work — making her the first African woman to receive the prestigious award!

Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestselling series She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter book biography that teaches young readers about this clever activist who found a way to combine her passion for women's rights and environmental protection in one organization! Eucabeth Odhiambo, author of Auma's Long Run, captures the determination of this dedicated woman, while black and white illustrations from Gillian Flint add visual interest. It's an exciting introduction to a woman who defied the odds... and persisted.
