Check out "The Littlest Leaf" by Cora Goforth

Several years ago, Cora Goforth and a couple of friends from her Girl Scout troop worked with the FRIENDS Asheville Chapter to blaze some trails. Now as a rising junior in high school, Cora has written a children's book as part of her Girl Scout Gold Award. The book is about environmental awareness through the journey of a leaf. Please click the button to read and share the book so Cora's message can reach and inform as many people as possible about the importance of caring for our world and the environment.

Read the Book!
