Written in the voice of Mother Africa, who speaks to her children — human beings — this picture book expresses the love between mother and child as it celebrates humanity’s common roots. Told in beautifully evocative free verse, with dreamlike watercolors that sharpen as they move closer to contemporary life. Includes back matter with nonfiction information about human evolution and about the migration of Homo sapiens from Africa around the globe.
