I absolutely loved reading this book. It is a collection of eight stories from eight African countries such as Swaziland, Senegal and Ghana. I like the fact that prior to each story there is a short introduction to the country. The stories are full of adventure, emotion and they really are uplifting and enticing for the children to listen to and also for them to read themselves.I have to comment on the illustrations as they are absolutely beautiful and compliment the book so well. The illustrati [...]

This is one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen, partly due to the really luscious textile illustrations that add so many layers of colour and culture to the traditional stories.The book has a collection of tales from Africa. The format is a double page of introduction to the country, along with some facts and geographical information. This is a great way to give a simple context to readers, and would be a great conversation or research starter for a class. Then, there is one tale per c [...]

A beautiful collection of tales from several African countries: Namibia, Malawi, Lesotho, Swaziland, Senegal, Ghana, Sudan, and Ethiopia. What makes this book so special is the brief country introduction provided before each respective tale, a detailed list of sources for each country at the end of the book and the magnificent art work, adorning each page. A real treasure! (Extra bonus: 10% of the proceeds from the sale of the book are donated to Books for Africa, an NGO bringing books to childr [...]

This is a great collection of traditional Africa tales that could be used as read-alouds or for storytelling. What's great about the book is its breakdown of the different countries in African accompanied by a short, not overwhelming introduction of history and facts about each. The stories are well-paced and a great addition to any folktale collection.

Background information on the country of each story was interesting, but I would have liked more cultural explanation for the stories. Some of the stories seemed unfinished, or maybe they just don't really make sense out of context. The illustrations are fabulous.
