9780060507299: Where ARe You Going Manyoni

"Manyoni is on her way to school; she gets up at dawn to walk two hours across the plain, along the Limpopo riverbed....As seen in Stock's beautifully rendered impressionistic watercolors...wild animals and birds are on almost every spread--more than 30 in all....A lovely book that draws the reader right in."--Kirkus Reviews. Pronouncing glossary.

Catherine Stock lives in New York City and France.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-In text and illustrations, Stock tells the story of a child's long walk to school in rural Zimbabwe. She begins her journey in the family's outdoor kitchen and, along her way, passes a giant baobab tree, the dry bed of the Limpopo River, a bushpig foraging among the fig trees, baboons near the malala palms, the woodland kingfishers, the kloof (ravine), the koppies (boulders), the krantz (cliffs) above the dam, and the plains that lead to the village where her school is located. The book concludes with a much-needed glossary of unfamiliar geographical words and a picture list of the animals featured in the text. While the watercolor illustrations are certainly accurate and quite lovely, there is no story to speak of- only a chronicle of the girl's lengthy trek. The expansive double-page spreads provide plenty of opportunities for youngsters to search for Manyoni and to identify a rich array of wildlife. While the narrative is not as strong as the artwork, youngsters will enjoy this glimpse at a universal experience in another part of the world.
