PRAISE FOR From the Heart of Africa

"This beautifully illustrated book of wisdom serves as a good introduction to maxims and also acts against the many prevalent negative stereotypes of African cultures and people--lovely and illuminating." --STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews

"In this attractive picture book for older readers, Walters unites 15 aphorisms from a range of African cultures... This unique collection works both as a gift book and a handy model for classroom projects." --Booklist

"4/4... While Walters has offered his interpretation of the aphorisms' meanings, readers will undoubtedly want to proffer their own... its contents obviously speak to a much wider audience, including adults. Highly Recommended." --CM Magazine

"Colourful and bold typography with extremely minimal text--some of the aphorisms are only three words long--will instantly appeal to young and reluctant readers." --Quill & Quire
