Lynne Cherry is the author and/or illustrator of over thirty award-winning books for children. Her best-selling books such as The Greak Kapok Tree, A River Ran Wild and The Armadillo from Amarillo teach children a respect for the earth. She lectures widely—and passionately--about how children can make a difference in a democratic society--if they feel strongly about something, they can change the world. She explains to educators how using nature to integrate curriculum makes a child’s learning relevant. Lynne’s books were inspired by her love of the natural world and she is is often accompanied on canoe and hiking trips with her two intrepid dogs, Rocky and Jasper. Lynne is an honoree for 2009 National Women's History Month. This year's theme, Women Taking the Lead to Save Our Planet, encourages the recognition of the important work of women in the on-going "green movement." The 2009 Honorees include scientists, engineers, business leaders, writers, filmmakers, conservationists, teachers, community organizers, religious or workplace leaders or others whose lives show exceptional vision and leadership to save our planet. Others on this list include some of Lynne Cherry's own heros, Helen Caldicott, Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Jane Goodall, Marion Stoddart and Amy Goodman.
