One of Canadian Children’s Book Centre’s Favourite Books of the Year 2018

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
