I think 'Moja Means One' is a very educational book. I would recommend it in use with discovering cultures and languages of the African culture. Even though the pictures on the pages were in black and white, the art and detail was outstanding. I would say that this book deserved the Caldecott Medal. Muriel Feelings taught in Africa. She wrote this book in hopes of sharing with American children African life and language. Even the illustrations could paint a picture for the children of the African culture. The story has 1 or 2 sentences per page but I would recommend the reading level for 3rd grade or higher. Feelings, Muriel. Feelings, Tom. Moja Means One. NY: The Dial Press. 1971.
