Take a look around to learn about Majii and the Mountain Gorillas of Rwanda. Read some excerpts from this children's book written by Marc-Daniel Gutekunst, illustrated by Stan Mullins and the students of Fernbank Elementary School, DeKalb County, Atlanta, Georgia.

In the book, Majii, a drop of water, travels to the mountains tops of the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda to meet the world's last mountain gorillas who share their plight for survival. Majii will also discover the impact the 1994 genocide had on the people of Rwanda and the wildlife. Majii leaves her newly found friends with a mission to encourage children around the world to forging new tomorrows by protecting our fragile ecosystems and also by nurturing reverence of nature.
