The Zelia Doll
Hearts For Hearts Girls
Zelia is a cheerful ten year old living on a coffee farm in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Every day, she does chores like feeding the animals, collecting eggs, and gathering firewood. At harvest time, she helps the coffee workers pick beans and place them to dry in the sun.
At school, Zelia learns that rain forests are “the lungs of the world.” She discovers how important Brazil’s forests are for millions of birds and animals (and people!) and that they’re disappearing way too fast. She wonders what one girl can possibly do to help the situation?
Then a man comes and talks to her class about ways to make coffee farms better for the environment. Zelia cannot wait to share what she’s learned with her parents! Her dream is to plant new trees on their farm and help rebuild the forests. Zelia knows every seed she plants is more than a tree. It’s the love she feels for her country and the world.
