Like Dr. Seuss, Kelley has written and beautifully illustrated a children's book about the environment. I Am Birch is not just about respect for the natural world, it's also about facing fear. All proceeds from the sale of the book go to the I Am Birch Foundation, which gives mini-grants to traditional Wabanaki artisans, a group of Native American tribes living in and around Maine, for the purchase of materials and supplies to enable them to continue making their art.
