Environment Matters


by Jordan Graves

Illustrated by Jamiya Jenkins

With fairy tale references, narrated by a girl named Kenya who likes to be outside, Environment Matters is the story of learning from our parents and teachers, building on our strengths, thinking about what to do with our lives, and ultimately Dr. Kenya Goodson’s decision to study, teach about, and care for the environment. Her reflections on transportation are timely as people in her home state of Alabama work to shift to electric cars.
