Fledgling review: Tender Earth by Sita Brahmachari


When Laila finds her grandmother’s Protest Book, she is instantly inspired.  Her first move is to become a vegetarian, after she sees the unfair way animals are treated.  She uses her grandmother’s handpainted banner on her first march – a women’s march.  When she meets Pari, a refugee, she sees the conditions the family lives in and knows she has to do something…  This is a story perfect for firing up young protestors, showing how we can all live on this Tender Earth.
