Audience K 6Appeal The book is about a scientist who ends up saving a village of Africans from hunger by planting the Mangrove Tree This book would be good for kids who are interested in plants, farming, social studies, and science This book teaches kids to give back to the less fortunate and use your talents to better the world.Award NCTE Orbis Pictus Award I have always said that trees are our friends, and this book proves my contention A simple thing like planting mangrove trees transformed an Eritrean community, and made everyone s lives better Mangroves create habitats that prevent beach erosion, a degree of shelter from storms, food for people and animals, and firewood This book would combine nicely with Lynne Cherry s The Sea, the Storm, and the Mangrove Tree, as well as with picture books about Wangari Maathai s tree planting efforts in Kenya Highly recommended Interspersed with a rhyming verse based on The House That Jack Built, this wonderful non fiction children s book explains the project of adding mangrove trees in Hargigo Eritrea in order to build a sustainable ecosystem that will help both the animals and the people in the area to live a better, self sufficient life The collage illlustrations are wonderful additions to the book. Love how portions of proceeds of this book go to helping stop poverty This is a great example of a book using the whole area of space for educating Looking at the pages on the left hand side help bring together the Dr.s visions on the right Very educational on the teaching of how using all your resources in your environment leads to prosperity. This book, by Cindy Trumbore and Susan Roth, is three books in one a cumulative rhyme like The House That Jack Built , the story of Dr Gordon Sato s mangrove tree planting project in Eritrea, and a pictorial biography of Dr Sato in the extensive Afterword That makes it sound pedantic, but it is not Children will appreciate how significant in the Eritrean economy was the simple act of planting these trees that live in salt water Amazing The remarkable illustrations by Susan Roth are paper and fabric collage The Lexile number is NC1190 NC means non conforming , but that is misleading The rhymed text on the left is simple and is probably readable by most second graders younger for reading aloud , though it gets difficult as it goes along The informative text on the right side is probably about fourth grade level The book could be used in units on Africa, on economy, on creativity, on helping others It could even be used in a unit on WWII Sato was a Japanese American who was interned at Manzanar during World War II It has deservedly won several awards 2011 Growing Good Kids Award Eureka Award, 2012 Gold Winner ALA Notable Children s Book Jane Addams Children s Book Award Orbis Pictus Award for Outstanding Nonfiction, Honor Book Notable Children s Books, Smithsonian Magazine Green Earth Book Award Best Children s Books of the Year, Outstanding Title Notable Books for a Global Society Choices Award from Roth s web page at The true story of the remarkable Dr Gordon Sato, a scientist who enriches people s lives and the environment with mangrove trees Delightful and inspiring
