Save the Land by Bethany Stahl is part of her series Save the Earth. In Save the Land we are introduced to Amari who lives in Africa and loves soccer. She and her mom live in the Sahel between the Sahara desert and the savannah. She notices that her neighbors are busy planting trees, and she asks her mom if she can help. Her mom welcomes her help and explains why they are all busy planting trees. They are helping to build the Great Green Wall that will hopefully keep the desert from encroaching on their land. Amari is thrilled that she can help bring the land back to life and is excited to learn that she can make a difference.
Save the Land is an excellent addition to Bethany Stahl’s Save the Earth series. It was so interesting to read about the Great Green Wall. I had never heard of it before. Not only does Save the Land introduce kids to a part of the world they may not be familiar with, but it also demonstrates how one person’s small actions, combined with others, can make huge differences in the world. Bethany Stahl’s illustrations are outstanding and really enhance the story. In addition to Amari and her mother, there is a giraffe that appears often. I love that Save the Land will encourage kids in their own part of the world to go out and make a difference. Save the Land is exactly the kind of environmental story that teachers and kids will love. There are additional activities at the back of the book.
