A is for Africa

by Ifeoma Onyefulu

Published by Cobblehill, 1993
28 pages
ISBN: 0-525-65147-0

Ages 3-7

A Nigerian photographer selected 26 photographs from her homeland to illustrate this introduction to Africa. While the images she chose are specific to Nigeria, she states in an author's note that she attempted to capture what the people of Africa have in common: "traditional village life, warm family ties, and above all the hospitality for which Africans are famous." The color photographs were also chosen with the interests of young children in mind, as they show objects (drums, lamps, houses) and individuals (children) that will appeal to them greatly. CCBC categories: Contemporary People, Places And Events; Historical People, Places And Events.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
