The Night Has Ears: African Proverbs
List Price: $17.95 (Hardcover - African Proverbs - 1999)
Ashays Price: $17.95
Description: Ashley Bryan says, My mother had a proverb for any situation, attitude, or event. Many of us have had the same experience. But have you ever heard, As a crab walks, so walk its children or A log may lie in the water for ten years, but it will never become a crocodile? These are two of the twenty-six African proverbs Ashley Bryan has chosen to illustrate in this book.
Having grown up with proverbs, it was no surprise to Mr. Bryan when he began reading African literature to find African proverbs along with African stories. The proverbs grew out of the lives and experiences of the varied African peoples. Each proverb here is credited to a specific tribe, yet, as Ashley Bryan explains, most were known in other tribes as well. And in fact, all are true for people everywhere. We may not see crabs often, but we understand about crab children, and even people who do not have crocodiles nearby know that they do not begin as logs. This is a book to treasure for its rich universal wisdom and its gloriously evocative illustrations. (32 pgs) All Ages
Ashay says, I love African proverbs because they can be so simple yet so profound. Thank you Mr. Bryan for another great book. A classic. Must have for your collection!
