     Wangari was born in Kenya when the British still ruled there. Over her lifetime, she exceeded expectations left and right. In a time when women were uneducated and thought inferior to men, she made her voice heard regarding deforestation by enlisting and empowering other women to plant trees. Her indomitable spirit was rewarded with a spot in parliament where she can make lasting change – in addition to her legacy of forest and wildlife. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004. Wangari celebrated the award by planting a tree. There is a lot of information in this book. I was riveted! Written by Franck Prevot, illustrated by Aurelia Fronty, sc, 40pp. ~Sara

    A unique construction toy for building trees - colorful, whimsical, beautiful trees! There are no blocks in this building set; it consists of 31 colorful branch pieces about the size of a thick marker. Each of these has holes in interesting places that let you place them a certain way as you build up your tree. Mine looked like a sort of fan-coral that could have been in a Dr. Seuss book! Create a quirky plant or a massive oak! One set will make a nice size tree (approx 20x20” or so), but 2 would be even more fun to build with. This is a fun and fascinating toy that combines nature and engineering.

    Most kids dip their toe into the entrepreneurship pond by setting up a lemonade stand. Jackson Jones finds himself plunged in full-force when his elderly neighbor, fresh from a disagreement with her son, offers Jackson her late husband's apple orchard. That is, if he can squeeze enough apples from the overgrown orchard to pay her $8,000 – and in one growing season! Unable to resist the challenge but intimidated by the responsibility, Jackson begins to devour books on apple-growing and convinces his cousins and siblings (with some difficulty) to work with him. Hard lessons in orchard maintenance and entrepreneurship are learned as 14-year-old Jackson and his young crew learn how to prune, irrigate, thin, spray, harvest and sell the apples. When apple season winds down, will they have earned the orchard? 294 pgs, pb. By Aaron Hawkins. – Jess

    There’s no better way to keep a tree in the house than with a Magic Tree. These small paper trees start out brown with dyed branches. After standing the tree in the non-toxic chemical mix provided, the tree begins to show its “true colors.”  30 minutes later, colored buds form on it. In 5-6 hours, you have a miniature tree with pink, orange, yellow, or green crystal blossoms (four possible colors; no color choice available but if you order more than one, you'll assort). Note for Mom: These are fascinating and beautiful - but very fragile - they are for observing, not handling.
