Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ru Story-Huffman
Beautifully photographed, Chidi Only Likes Blue is a book of colors presented in a multicultural view. Chidi's favorite color is blue, but his older sister, Nneka, takes it upon herself to teach Chidi about the other colors that can be found throughout their village. The African name is presented for each color, which increases the educational experience. The photographs show people in everyday situations, from work to play. Also presented are photos of the village, the landscape surrounding the area, and close-up shots of particular items of interest. The photographs are the main draw for this book, with the text almost secondary. The photos are presented in colorful detail, sharply done, and emotionally pleasing. Onyefulu was born in Nigeria, and is a trained photographer. Her first book, A Is for Africa, was chosen as a Notable Children's Book in the field of Social Studies. Chidi Only Likes Blue would be a good introductory tool for use in learning colors, multicultural studies, or a high school photography class.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2This companion to the author's A Is for Africa Cobblehill, 1993 introduces everyday objects used by a family living in a Nigerian village. Chidi, a young boy whose favorite color is blue, likes it, "Because the sky is blue, and my best shirt is blue." His older sister has other favorite colors: red for the caps of the chiefs, yellow for the gari made from cassava roots, green for the leaves from the akwukwo uma plant used to wrap foods, brown for the board used in the game okwe. The color photography is sharp and lush with close-ups that help to identify the objects. The people all smile happily for the camera. Youngsters studying aspects of life in Africa or how children live in different parts of the world will find this concept book useful.Susan Pine, New York Public Library
