Review: A heartwarming story of life in Mali, West Africa, is told as if by a baby nestled on her mother's back. The day is spent pounding millet, drawing water from the well, visiting friends, and shopping at the open market - always bound together. The strong bond between mother and child continues even when the child is too old to be carried. Watercolor illustrations warmly and accurately depict the happenings of this tale in their African village setting.
