A new children’s book by Liberian author, Ophelia S. Lewis, her passion for writing and Village Tales Publishing commitment to printing multi-cultural children’s books are good enough reasons for our readers’ expectations. The newest addition to Sapo Children’s Booklist for African children literacy process will meet that expectation.
Synopsis: Eight-year-old Toby Pannoh lives with his family in Grand Kru County, Liberia. Toby behaves most of the time, but not his five-year-old little sister, Mah. She cries for things, loves to slam doors and hates to take afternoon naps. In order to deal with Mah’s tantrums, Toby decides to teach his little sister some good manners to help her behave better. Cleverly, he uses the alphabets to teach Mah her alphabets and good manners.
Our world is filled with amazing people, places, and things; why not publish books that will help teachers and parents include our world in our children’s reading practice?
