9781845075101: My Grandfather Is a Magician: Work and Wisdom in an African Village

This is the story of a little Nigerian boy who doesn't know what job to do when he grows up. His father teaches in a school; his mother owns a bakery; Auntie Ngo is a doctor, while another aunt makes pots. But his grandfather seems wiser and more interesting than any of them - for he is a traditional healer, using the ancient knowledge of plants and trees. This child's-eye view of the diversity of African life, captured in stunning photographs, is sure to absorb children of all cultures.

Review:

This is one of the many books (Ifeoma) has written about the continent in which she grew up, accompanied by her own beautiful photographs... The photographs, together with her simple explanations, ensure that there is plenty to talk about. The Ultimate First Book Guide
