It’s all smiles at Village Tales Publishing as we unwrap Augustus Voahn’s new book, Ballah Makes Shapes. Mr. Voahn’s contribution to Liberia literary works is notably playing a vital role in building a useful source of books African children can relate to culturally. What makes this book equally important is the collaboration of writer and illustrator; Voahn and Osbert bring life to characters African children can relate to. Osbert’s illustrations complement the story in a way young African readers’ steps to literacy is accommodating to what they see every day around them. We are excited to be part of this incredible undertaking and intend to work continuously, stressing the importance of books that put our children on the road to literacy.
Congratulations! Augustus Voahn and Shabamukama Osbert for an outstanding job.
