From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-5-- The Afro-Bets kids are a group of six black elementary-aged classmates. Mr. Amegashie, referred to as the storyteller, weaves the rich history and geography of Africa into a narrative for them. Beginning with ancient Africa, he relates how Africa had created great kingdoms and had made great strides long before modern-day powers existed. He also discusses the people, land features, animals, arts, and culture of the continent. As a resource for reports and background reading, this book gives a very basic overview. The illustrations are a mixture of full-color and black-and-white photographs and drawings; occasionally, the inclusion of the Afro-Bets kids on the same page with the other illustrations is distracting. There is a glossary but no index, and the three maps are disappointing as they are small, indistinct, and not very informative. The use of a storyteller to relay factual information is an interesting approach, and the Afro-Bets kids project positive images. A book that could be read aloud in story hours and that is easy enough for elementary-grade readers. --Jeanette Lambert, LaVega School, Waco, TX
