About The Girl Who Planted Trees

When a small girl discovers there was once a lush forest on the great grey mountain next to her village, she is determined to plant as many new trees as she can. But the elements are set against her as the blazing sun shrivels the new shoots and fierce storms wash away all her hard work... but still, she never, EVER gives up.

Gloriously illustrated with rich and evocative colours by Anastasia Suvorova, this gorgeous picture book will empower young environmentalists to fight for change in their own communities, even when the odds seem to be stacked against them.
