Beautiful book - inside and outside. Incredible pictures and presentation of folks from home. The pictures are so real and close - yet they stand uniquely on their own. Much gratitude the Feelings for their work.

My best friend is tutoring two girls from different areas of Africa, but their common language is Swahili. I got her this book to learn a little of the language to show them how much she values their language. When I met them and said, "Jamba!" , they were delighted!!
I used it in my sixth grade classrooms, but my littlest grandchildren are charmed.

Gorgeous book. Having spent three weeks in East Africa last year and anticipating grandchildren I bought this book. The text and illustrations are simple but not simplistic. I have no African heritage but always wanted to visit and finally got there. East Africa is very like my country's Outback. Almost familiar territory but no emus and many giraffe.
I am an American citizen, but my fiance is Kenyan. I was thrilled to find this book, since when we have children I want them to know as much about his culture as they do mine. I really like the idea of this book - introducing young children to Kiswahili words, and I love the pronunciation guides that are provided. I only have one complaint with this book. Its focus is completely on rural life, rural traditions, and rural culture. There is nothing about the larger African cities (my fiance grew up in Nairobi... not a tiny village). So if your goal is to learn a few Kiswahili words (although many of the words themselves are related to rural life), then this is a great book. But do not expect to get any idea of modern aspects of African life or city life. Even so, the book is cute, and worth it just for the Kiswahili it does contain.
