Ron's Mission book coverRon’s Big Mission by Rose Blue & Corinne Naden
Another true story. Ron wants to check out books at his local library, but they have rules about that. Only white people can check out books. But Ron is determined. He is not leaving until he gets his special books about airplanes. (Ron is so determined that he keeps learning about aircraft and grows up to be an astronaut.)

One more true story—from Africa. When Wangari was a young girl in Kenya there were trees everywhere. But when she comes back from college in America—the trees are gone! Wangari is afraid that all of the forests will be destroyed—so she plants nine tiny trees and changes Africa forever. (Plant a tree! Arbor Day is April 24.)
