Editorial Reviews

A celebration of Africa’s culture and diversity, Ashanti to Zulu educates and entertains, matching the 26 letters of the alphabet with 26 African tribes, their customs and traditions explored with detail and aplomb. A veteran performer of African folklore and children’s stories, Spencer Shaw brings pride and pace to this rich tapestry of African life. Shaw’s storytelling is fluid and deliberate, but nevertheless animated, brimming with vibrant imagination. As they traverse the alphabet, young listeners will meet the Tuareg tribe, in which men wear the veils and women do most of the talking, and join the Baule people as they forge a river on the back of a crocodile.
