I very much enjoyed your book and you have a very talented friend in Janice. I never had a chance to visit the African continent and because of Janice’s wonderful illustrations and your easy but informative text, I could almost feel the heat of Africa coming thr[ough] those pages.
I loved it!! It’s very nice and simple for young kids yet captivating with all the fun adventures. And I love love the illustrations.
I love it! I read it this morning twice [after] waking up and your book brought me the most joy. I love the vibrant colors and the way you describe the animals, and the adjectives you use. Very informative and great for little minds learning new words.
I love it so much. I can’t wait to buy it for my kids. They will love it especially because it just illustrates their recent experience in Kenya. Great job and the illustrations are beautiful as well.
Thanks for sharing this masterpiece. I really enjoyed reading it. I particularly got super nostalgic going through the pages
I was super excited to read your book!!! You did a fantastic job. Very good flow, and the content is captivating. Made me very nostalgic.
I love it! Brought back memories of the books I used to read in elementary school and I felt like a little kid again. I love the beautiful images and illustrations, it makes it so entertaining and easy to relate to. The storyline is educational and the kids will definitely be more enlightened about their homeland after reading it.
