Pub. Date:
1st American ed.
When a little girl learns in school about a tall, proud African people called the Masai, she discovers a sense of kinship and imagines herself living in Africa. She would live in a circle of huts in a tiny village. Instead of having a hamster as a pet, she would live among the giraffes and zebras on the African plain. Using energetic language, Masai and I is a joyous celebration of two unique cultures. Full color.
