Praise
"Drawing on personal experiences, Cunnane opens with an acknowledgement of Kenya's distinctive tapestry of languages and customs, but then goes on to show qualities in the character, community and play of one particular child of that land that mirror those of children everywhere. A rare excursion, glowing with love and laughter."
"The brilliant, colorful, and humorous illustrations stand out against the white backgrounds...A gentle story about family, responsibility, and a curious little boy."
"Well-chosen details of village life...are an inviting introduction to a different culture vividly evoked by Juan's illustrations."
From the Publisher
Annotation This stunningly illustrated picture book tells the sweet, humorous story of a small Kenyan boy's urge to explore the day and all its promise instead of taking care of his grandfather's cows. After escorting the cows to their green-and-yellow pasture, he wanders off and has all sorts of charming experiences. Spotting a beautiful monkey, playing ball with a friend, and hobnobbing with friendly adults, the boy completely forgets all about the cows--and then he must face his grandfather. This gentle story brings Kenya to life, and is accompanied by glorious, sunny pieces of art that stream gorgeously across the pages.
Editors Note Takes readers on a journey to a small Kenyan village where the day starts with the loud crow of a rooster, a ball of rags is used in play instead of a soccer ball, and a girl eats a tasty bug as an afternoon treat, in a colorful picture book about a young person's life in a rural land.
Editors Note 2 Imagine you live in a small Kenyan village, where the sun rises over tall trees filled with doves. You wake to the sound of a rooster's crow, instead of an alarm clock and the school bus. Your afternoon snack is a tasty bug plucked from the sky, instead of an apple. And rather than kicking a soccer ball across a field, you kick a homemade ball of rags down a dusty road. But despite this, things aren't that different for a Kenyan child than they would be for an American kid, are they? With so much going on around you, it's just as easy to forget what your mama asked you to do!
