Photographic images of village life among the Igala people in Nigeria shine from the pages of this unique counting book that follows the short journey of ONE small boy to his grandmother's house. Along the way, Emeka passes people and objects numbered from two to ten (FOUR brooms, SIX beaded necklaces, SEVEN musical instruments, etc.). Brief sidebars provide information on the items and activities shown in the lively color photographs in this wonderful companion to the author's earlier work, A is for Africa (Cobblehill / Dutton, 1993).
