Hands Around the Library

“In January 2011, in a moment that captured the hearts of people all over the world, thousands of Egypt’s students, library workers, and demonstrators surrounded the great Library of Alexandria and joined hands, forming a human chain to protect the building. They chanted “We love you, Egypt!” as they stood together for the freedom the library represented.”13269821-1

Trees..around the World

As I read about Jadav  Molai Payeng and his work in India  planting trees http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Making-a-difference/2016/0616/This-tribesman-planted-a-forest-in-India-that-s-bigger-than-Central-Park  I thought about the other tree stories I have shared and a few new ones I am just learning about. We could learn  and teach a lot of our world through the tree stories of Wangari Matthai. Kate Sessions, Anne Frank and  The Little Bonsai from Hiroshima. If you have other book suggestions let me know!
