    We need to constantly consider the purpose of trees. To not do so is a costly mistake. In an article, How Trees Make a Difference, at the website for the National Wildlife Federation, we read, in a list of ten, how trees can better the air quality and create habitats for plants and animals. This is understandable. It has also been documented they are good for the economy, not because of how they can be used, but because homes and property with trees around them are more valuable than those witho We need to constantly consider the purpose of trees. To not do so is a costly mistake. In an article, How Trees Make a Difference, at the website for the National Wildlife Federation, we read, in a list of ten, how trees can better the air quality and create habitats for plants and animals. This is understandable. It has also been documented they are good for the economy, not because of how they can be used, but because homes and property with trees around them are more valuable than those without trees. During Women's History Month, let us take a few moments to highlight new book releases focusing on women who have dedicated their lives to understanding and protecting trees and their forests. Both women were the first in their particular field in their accomplishments. In light of relentless challenges, their deeds are remarkable. There are other ways of approaching what we love and doing our best to preserve it. One girl grew up knowing the forests around California's Siskiyou Mountains. Nothing found in those forests frightened her as much as fire. She wanted to do everything she could to protect those forests and their inhabitants. Headstrong Hallie!: The Story of Hallie Morse Daggett, the First Female "Fire Guard" (Sleeping Bear Press, February 15, 2021) written by Aimee Bissonette with illustrations by David Hohn chronicles the life of this girl and woman and the impressive steps she took to make her dream a reality.

    While I always enjoy reading picture book biographies about inspiring people I didn't previously know about, this one just wasn't as engaging to me as others are and I don't know why. It has a great message of perseverance (although I'm not a huge fan of the word headstrong because of the negative connotations associated with it). The illustrations were great and the story was interesting. But it was just missing something and I don't know what.

    An excellent picture book biography for a woman that not many know about! Hits the right balance between factual without being overly long. I appreciate the author’s note about the uncertainty of information about Hallie’s life.

    I love learning about strong independent women, and Hallie was one of the strongest, but not well known. She was the first female fire guard for the US Forest Service. A must read for parents of headstrong little girls...oh the possibilities!
