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 (964 pgs) Ages 4-8

Ashay says, " What a beautiful vision of African life and what a beautiful language. I love this book and it is the perfect beginner book for teaching kids Swahili. Also included are more glowing illustrations from Tom Feelings which depicts the beauty of African people. Must have for the library and classroom!"
