Once again, Roman has written an excellent children's book in multicultural studies. In this case she writes about the African nation of Kenya, a former British colony where the influence is still seen in the currency and the national sport of cricket.
Some of the most common words such as those for mother and father spoken by children are given in the Maasai language. The reader is introduced to a few of the most popular foods, major attractions in Kenya and what children there do for fun. The flow of the text is very smooth and the associated illustrations are softly colored, making them easy on the eyes. A pronunciation guide to the most difficult words is included on the last page.
As the people of the world grow more interdependent, it is to everyone's advantage that young schoolchildren learn about the people in other countries. This book is an excellent introduction to Kenya for children in early elementary school.

Isn't it amazing how kids can always find a way of having fun when they are allowed to, for example, play Cricket using bats shaped a bit like those used in Baseball, or making their own toys!
I loved what the name of Kenya's Capital City 'Nairobi' meant in Maasai!
Kids will love to read this book and see it's colourful drawings.
