9781563977688: Vacation in the Village: A Story from West Africa

School is out. Now it's time for Nweb's vacation. He should be excited, but instead he's worried. This year Nweb's family has decided to leave the city and vacation in the village of his grandparents. Nweb has never been to the village. He doesn't know anyone there. He's worried that he won't meet anyone who will play with him. But things begin to brighten up when he meets a boy name Masso. Soon Nweb is fishing, climbing trees, and learning the customs of his people. He is sad to return to the city, but one day he will visit the village again.

From Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-Nwemb, a young boy living in Cameroon, is unhappy to learn that his family will be leaving the city for a vacation in the village where his grandparents live. Once there, though, he makes friends with Masso and does exciting things with him, like fishing, exploring the forest, and listening to stories about their ancestors. As the vacation ends, Nwemb realizes that he has come to love the simple village life and vows to return soon. This dull, prosaically told tale lacks virtually any richness of detail: there is no description of what is in the forest, of the fish in the river, or of the prey the boys are hunting in the fields. Nor is there enough information to compare and contrast city and village life. The bright, childlike illustrations are equally unappealing.
