What a wonderful agricultural project! Dr. Sato's initiative of planting trees in a dry land is a hopeful way of making an environmental and economic/social impact. And I love that he named it for the camp he was held in as a Japanese-American during WWII. Way to turn a negative into a positive. Love to read about people using their talents to help others. Great job by Roth and Trumbore in bringing the story to a wide audience in this nonfiction picture book whose dual storylines (simple "House that Jack built" rhyme for young audiences, explanatory sidebars for older kids) opens up its accessibility. The endnotes and bibliography add great info for those wanting to seek out more about Sato and/or contribute to his effort.
