Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed actress Cheryl Lynn Bruce brings her appealing and buttery voice to this tale of life in a West African village. A young girl named Osa is on a quest to understand why the women in her village live in round houses while the men live in square ones; her grandmother supplies the answers she is seeking. Children using the app version will enjoy watching the colorful chalk illustrations change as they listen to the rhythmic story. Fun to listen to, and a useful way to teach children about geography and gender issues.
