Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jessy Deutsch
Tipilit and his younger brother Leyo are boys of the Masai tribe in Kenya, searching for the best places for their cows to graze. As they search, Leyo learns from his older brother the meaning of bravery and how to make peace with nature. The strong, natural appeal of the illustrations heightens the excitement and reflects the energy of the boys' adventures, and reinforces the deep, essential connection between humans and their environment. Part of the "Banks Street Ready to Read" series.
