The Tree Lady

treelady

This week in third grade we are reading The Tree Lady by H. Joseph Hopkins and illustrated by Jill McElmurry as part of our continued focus on Women’s History Month. This wonderful picture book biography tells the life story of Kate Sessions who through her love of nature, science, and especially trees, worked to make the world a greener and more beautiful place. Did you know that Kate Sessions was the first woman to graduate from the University of California with a science degree in 1881? It’s true! Check out the book The Tree Lady to learn more!
