I love this book. I read it to my my kids age 3 and 6 and they both love it. The book contains a few non- Engish words but with pronounciation aids. The pictures in the book are very beautiful and colorful.

I really couldn't sing the praises of this book enough. I picked up the book initially because I recognized the author's name as Igbo. I was thrilled to find a well written book with beautiful, vivid photography that really captures many of the aspects of traditional Igbo life. I just love this book of colors and I think it is my favorite book of colors yet (and we own many). It is a great introduction to Igbo culture for my children and a source of pride for all Igbo people. A beautifully done book. I highly, highly recommend it.
