You are now entering the world of my thoughts.

This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.

A-Z Challenge: A is for Ashanti to Zulu

April is here and so begins the blogging from A to Z Challenge! I will be blogging and sharing with you all wonderful books that have multicultural themes and fla-va! Enjoy and Happy Reading!

A is for African Traditions in Ashanti to Zulu.

Author: Margaret Musgrove

Publisher: Puffin Books, July 15th, 1992

Ages: 3 and up

Info about the book:

Artists Leo and Diane Dillon won their second consecutive Caldecott Medal for this stunning ABC of African culture. 

This Caldecott Medal-winning book gives fascinating facts about African tribes and customs. The different tribes are listed in alphabetical order, and the illustrations are rich and beautiful.

Why I like this book: 

This book brings back wonderful memories of my childhood. It was a family favorite to check out at the library. :)
