Review: Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters: An African Tale

User Review  - Rashanda Ravenel - Goodreads

The illustrations look like a beautiful painting, with everything true to scale and detailed. This would be a great book for introducing the terms protagonist and antagonist to a class. I would also use the book to discuss the power of showing kindness to each other. Read full review
