Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Prompted by the "tingle of kinship" she felt when she learned about East Africans in school one day, an elementary grader compares her daily customs with those of the people she studied, in Virginia Kroll's Masai And I. Were she Masai, she muses, she'd do many things differently: sleep on cowhide on the bare earth, eat with her mom and other women apart from the men and boys, live among the African animals she sees in the Zoo, and more. Nancy Carpenter's oil and color pencil paintings vivify the wistful musings of a young African-American, entranced by the discovery of a heritage she might share.
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
When Linda, a city girl, learns about the Masai in East Africa, she feels that deep tug of with her ancestors. How would her life differ if she lived there? Kroll describes the girl's thoughts. If she were Masai, she would eat with the women, she wouldn't ride in a car but would 'glide across grasslands open and free.' Yet, one thing would be the same, she would have the same skin and features. A rich way to explore our own heritage.
