In this empowering picture book by award-winning author Caryl Hart, one small girl inspires her whole village to plant a beautiful forest on the mountain. When a little girl's grandad shows her a picture of what the great, grey mountain used to look like, she can't wait to plant a new forest and for the animals to return.



I liked the book because the planted lots of trees and the mountain became so beautiful. Animals came back to the wonderful green land.

I thought the book shows you how to take care of the world. I thought it was a good book. My favourite character was the girl, because she planted trees. I would recommend it to my friends to read.

It's so important to look after our planet. I like this story so much. The girl was good at planting trees

the girls went to plant trees on their mountain because it was dry no life on it( o animals or trees) She buried her pip and watered them later. they started to grow but the storm destroyed her plants and trees. She and her grandpa planted some pips at home and waited to get them stronger and after they went together to the mountain to plant them. The village people did the same and they brought their plants and trees. They work together and looked after the trees and plant new ones. The girl grow old and the mountain became more beautiful and green with life.
