Amadi's Snowman got a great review in the July issue of Booklist!
Amadi, an Igbo boy in sun-drenched , sees no point in learning
to read, until he sees a picture of a snowman in a book and is curious
to find out more. He wants to learn about the far-off country where
frozen rain falls from the sky - a world so different from his own -
and the chance to read about it fills him with joy. Children will enjoy
reading about Amadi's life in the village, depicted in the earth-toned,
intimate scenes. It's a nice reversal that young children will be able
to grasp - what looks exotic and faraway to one person is a place where
someone else lives.
