The beauty of this work is that it serves many purposes. Not only does the work contain wonderful art, but it serves to reinforce the alphabet and provide children with marvelous examples of the many cultures that people the African continent. As such, it is a text that may be used at many levels. The complex pictures may be used to urge students to expand characterization through the descriptive writing process. It works well in social studies units on Africa by providing some personalization to the geographic locales. The work has something to offer students from all levels, as a simple ABC book, a middle level reader, or an upper level graphic art work.

This is a great little book, and I used it as the first one in my classroom. It was easy to incoporate it with my lesson, and the kids loved looking at all the pictures, even if they didn't really enjoy the text.
