Mama Miti

Grade 1-4 library classes this week read the remarkable story, Mama Miti, by Donna Jo Napoli and illustrated by Kadir Nelson.

This beautiful picture book tells the story of the late Wangari Maathai, the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Students also watched a short video of Wangari Maathai telling the inspiring story of the hummingbird and you can watch it below. Mama Miti inspires each of us to do what we can to help in our own situations.
