Ashanti to Zulu: African Traditions by Margaret Musgrove

What a beautiful non-fiction book. This is not a continuous story, this is a survey of the African continent and the people who live there. The artwork is unbelievable. Each culture gets a page with a picture and a paragraph or two about something unique to them.

I found it interesting, but the nephew found it totally boring as there was no story and he couldnt relate to it (meaning there are no monsters or robots.) The niece was interested. She found the artwork beautiful and she appreciated it, but she needed to do this in chunks and not all at once. The nephew gave this 1 star and the niece gave this 3 stars.

This is for curious kids in an older range. It’s worth checking out.

The Dillon's illustrations combined with the text make for a powerful version of the ABC's. I enjoyed the magnificent illustrations throughout the book. I loved that I was an A, B, C book that taught the history of this beautiful culture. I would love to read this book to my students so that they know some history about the culture as well as seeing the beautiful illustrations. Each traditions comes with an illustration of the corresponding tribe or tradition to the letter.

Thank you! From Ashanti to Zulu, 26 African tribes appear in a sort of slide show alphabet, each one allotted a lavish painting over a paragraph of text, with words and pictures joined in a formal, vaguely deco-style frame. This prescribed format gives a superficial air of sameness to the pictures even though the Dillons are careful to depict differences in headdress, dwelling structure, etc. The text, higgledy-piggledy, simply supplies a cultural snippet on each tribe: a general characterization of the Jie, herders in Uganda whose ""men. Nor is any distinction made between a custom peculiar to the tribe and, for example, the Fanti one of ""pouring libation"" with palm wine.
