The River That Gave Gifts: An Afro American Story

Margo Humphrey, Author Children's Book Press (CA) $14.95 (24p) ISBN 978-0-89239-027-4
The Fifth World Tales series comprises three bilingual titles (Adventures and Aunt Otilia in Spanish; Little Weaver in Vietnamese) and River, an Afro-American story told in English. The illustrations are childlike bold lines filled with bright, almost garish colors. For those whose eyes can take the glare, the drawings convey a folk art warmth compatible with the books' ethnic subjects. These will be useful for children in bilingual families and will give readers a peek at cultures other than their own. All ages. (May)
