The Mangrove Tree: Planting Trees To Feed Families by Susan L. Roth and Cindy Trumbore
This is an interesting and educational children's picture book about how Dr. Sato transformed an African community by planting mangrove trees which fed their sheep and cattle and housed more fish so they now have more food to eat there. The story is told in alternating verse and prose - lovely verse on one page and informational prose on the next. The illustrations are unique and colorful and perfect for this book. I highly recommend this book!
