The Mangrove Tree by Susan L. Roth and Cindy Trombore

This book tells the true story of a third world country that was lacking both food and money. A doctor had a unique idea: could mangrove trees feed the livestock in this country? Although a worthy plan, this would not come easily - they would have to plant the trees and wait for them to grow. Eventually the mangroves grew into a 4 mile forest!

This is a good book for children. This book is interesting and has a good moral. The authors' definitely achieved their purpose in explaining how the scientist carefully chose this tree, measured the progress of livestock s growth, and oversaw the health improvement of the entire village. I recommend others read this book, as it is both fun and educational.
