A Is for Africa by Ifeoma Onyefulu

From A to Z, stunning color photographs depict everyday life in Nigeria, where the author-photographer grew up—but the images pictured also represent the rich diversity of Africa, and the warm family ties and traditional village life found throughout this vast colorful continent.
"A talented photographer, Onyefulu [offers] and incisive, sophisticated view of her homeland’s rich heritage."—Publishers Weekly

"Visually appealing."—Kirkus Reviews
