“The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time to plant a tree is now.” -proverb
As a young boy, Jadav “Molai” Payeng witnessed the disastrous impact of the rainy season in India. He was distressed by how many animals were losing their homes, and so he built them a new forest.
This true story about a man who dedicated his life to expanding the forest area near his home and keeping the animal population alive makes an absolutely gorgeous picture book with a message of dedication and
strength for young people ages 4-8.
The stunning art of Kayla Harren really brings this Indian forest to life.
