The Mangrove Tree - Planting Trees to Feed Families
By Susan Roth and Cindy Trumbore.
This story of Dr. Gordon Sato's Manzanar Project--the name he gave to his work planting mangrove trees in Africa to help erase poverty and hunger-is a powerful example of the influence of the Japanese American experience and how it has the ability to influence and change the world. Told in two voices, one poetic and one factual, it is a great story to teach children how simple ideas can create global change. Ages 9-up. Hardbound: 40 pp.
