Great Swahili Beginner Book 

Here is an introduction not only to the letters of the alphabet, but also to another language and culture. Each of the twenty-four letters (there are no q or x sounds in Swahili) is represented by a Swahili word, a clear phonetic pronunciation guide, and an explanation of how the word fits into traditional East African village life. Feelings uses a unique pen-and-tempura technique to create realistic, luminous grayscale illustrations.Caldecott Honor Medal; ALA Notable Book (56 pgs) Ages 4-8
