Inspired by the number one New York Times best seller She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter book series, adapted for audio, about women who spoke up and rose up against the odds - including Wangari Maathai!

In this chapter book biography by critically acclaimed author Eucabeth Odhiambo, listeners learn about the amazing life of Wangari Maathai - and how she persisted.

When Wangari Maathai learned about how many trees had been cut down in Kenya, where she was from, she was horrified. So she founded the Green Belt Movement and got friends, family, and even strangers to help her plant trees and respect the environment - and she received a Nobel Peace Prize for her work.

Complete with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton and a list of ways that listeners can follow in Wangari Maathai's footsteps and make a difference!

And don’t miss out on the rest of the audiobooks in the She Persisted series, featuring so many more women who persisted!
