Author: Nishant Tharani

Long, long time ago, trees walked the earth. This is the story of how they came to stay in one place. Told in both English and Swahili, When Trees Walked promotes environmental
awareness through mythic storytelling and engages readers with dynamic illustrations set in Tanzania.

Hapo zamani za kale, miti ilikuwa inatembea. Hadithi hii inasimulia kilichoifanya ikakaa mahali pamoja. Masimulizi ya Kiingereza na Kiswahili ya Miti Ilipokuwa Yatembea na michoro yenye mandhari ya kiTanzania ina mvuto wa pekee. Imeandika na Nishant Tharani. Michoro ni ya Nadir Tharani ambaye ni mshairi na mwandishi. Kimefasiriwa kwa Kiswahili na Demere Kitunga ambaye pia ni mwandishi.
