It is a good book to show children how other children live in another country and the responsibilities they have.

I really enjoyed this book and the culutural aspects of it. I think this is a great book to share with children to learn about the different cultures that we have. This book also provides language from the culture. As well with great illustrations that connect the story. ( )

This book takes place in Kenya, Africa. It is a morning to night book, and basically just goes through a day in the life of a Kenyan child. The book is diverse in culture, as it takes place in a village in Kenya. This book shows the different life of a child from another country. The illustrations are bright, bold, and beautiful. They draw the reader's attention and show the Kenyan culture with these aspects. I believe the major theme of the book is diversity in life. ( )

I enjoyed this book for a number of reasons. First off, it takes you through a day in the life of a Kenyan child. Its vivid imagery engages the reader and makes you feel as though you were actually there. For example, the first sentence of the book says, “Roosters crow, and you wake one morning in the green hills of Africa, sun lemon bright over eucalyptus trees full of doves.” Along with this vivid imagery are colorful pictures that encapsulate the words that describe them. It goes into detail about what a typical Kenyan boy would do like chasing monkeys and tending after his grandfather’s cows. This book shows what it is like to take part in another culture that is different than our own. The book also includes Kenyan words and phrases such as “Hodi” and “Una taka kucheza?” which is a different and knowledgeable feature to include in a book. The main character in the book, a young Kenyan boy, was given the task to look after his grandfather’s cows but loses sight of them when he went to goof off with his friends. This also teaches children of responsibility and trust and how important they are. They are things we as people should not take for granted and take very seriously. Overall, it is a very informative book that teaches very pertinent information in everyday life and one I thoroughly enjoyed reading. ( )

I wish I could give this book a higher rating, but perhaps my criteria are overly stringent. The illustrations are beautiful, but the colors are unnatural, which might be fine if the book were not clearly presenting itself as a "multicultural" experience. The same could be said for the text. Numerous inaccuracies mark it as the product of a fairly shallow acquaintance with its setting. My kids, who have visited this area of Kenya, read the book once and lost interest as they said, "The person who wrote this book must not have been there." I would say this is an entertaining book for kids with an exotic setting and if you enjoy this type of illustration for its artistic merit, great. But from the standpoint of cultural education, it's highly over rated. ( )
