This book is written by the noted African American novelist and poet, Maya Angelou and illustrated with photographs of scenes from Ndebele life. The narrator is eight year old Thandi, who describes her house, her friends and her activities in a cheerful, lively way. My daughter liked Thandi's sense of humor, especially in describing her frustrations with her young brother. The text is fairly long and may be a little too "belle lettre" for some young readers, but the pictures and colors of the text keep it interesting.
