Moon Mountain Publishing
Ages 4 – 7
Young Fatuma and her mother visit a contemporary African market to buy fabrics and teas and learn about life.
Tadgell’s artwork highlights the glorious colors of the area’s fabrics and landscapes, and demonstrates the warmth of a closely knit community in which tradition is paramount.
There is even a recipe for East African chai (tea) included in this highly enjoyable tale by Leslie Bulion, whose engaging text is superbly complemented by the soft, watercolor-style illustrations by Nicole Tadgell.
