From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 2. This companion to the author's A Is for Africa (Cobblehill, 1993) introduces everyday objects used by a family living in a Nigerian village. Chidi, a young boy whose favorite color is blue, likes it, "Because the sky is blue, and my best shirt is blue." His older sister has other favorite colors: red for the caps of the chiefs, yellow for the gari made from cassava roots, green for the leaves from the akwukwo uma plant used to wrap foods, brown for the board used in the game okwe. The color photography is sharp and lush with close-ups that help to identify the objects. The people all smile happily for the camera. Youngsters studying aspects of life in Africa or how children live in different parts of the world will find this concept book useful.?Susan Pine, New York Public Library
