Info about the book:

Artists Leo and Diane Dillon won their second consecutive Caldecott Medal for this stunning ABC of African culture. 

This Caldecott Medal-winning book gives fascinating facts about African tribes and customs. The different tribes are listed in alphabetical order, and the illustrations are rich and beautiful.
