14 COWS FOR AMERICA, written by Carmen Agra Deedy, collaborated on with Kimeli Naiyomah, illustrated by Thomas Gonzalez. I have to say, I am very excited about this book.
I haven't seen it yet, but Carmen has proven time and again that she can pick out the best stories like diamonds in a rain storm. And since my husband and I spent our honeymoon (old pics on an old website) in Kenya and got to know some of the Masai people first-hand, I can attest to their warm hearts and generous natures. Their kindness after our disaster doesn't surprise me and after seeing a few of the images in this book trailer, I think this book is going to feel like a warm hug from those remarkable people.
