A heartwarming book for the snow storm

Mama Miti tells the story of Wangari Maathai, the “tree mother” of Kenya. This heartwarming tale reminds us there is always something we can do to overcome our problems: wish for peace and plant a tree. The illustrations are a striking combination of collage and drawings. Let Mama Miti take you away to the warm weather of Kenya and remind you how soon trees will be growing in springtime.

Mama Miti written by Donna Jo Napoli and illustrated by Kadir Nelson, ages 3-6, Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, $16.99
