A is for Africa is a fresh depiction of the English Alphabet set to authentic native African illustrations.
A is for Africa is a fresh depiction of the English Alphabet set to authentic native African illustrations. This early childhood read-a-long is written in a playful rhyme that promises to keep the attention of parent and child alike. The book uses the African "batik" style of paintings to illustrate in a truly unique way. Over thirty individual pieces of art are used to bring this manuscript to life. The unique blend of colors, lines, and space brought out by this special technique of illustration is noticeably rare among other books. Together with the text, they beautifully convey to the reader the people, animals, culture and amazing sites that embody the continent of Africa.
The author currently resides in the city of Cleveland, Ohio with his wife and son. Michael obtained his bachelors in Elementary Education from Michigan State University (’96) and is currently working on his masters in Education at Cleveland State University. He has been working as a full-time youth minister and educator for over 10 years and writes children’s books as a pastime. On a trip to Uganda Africa in 2006, Michael got the inspiration for this book and was fortunate enough to meet a local artist who helped to make that inspiration a reality.
Dr. Kessler, of Case Western Reserve University, recommends to parents an alphabet book A Is For Africa by Michael Samulak; illustrated by Sswaga Sendiba. This book is more than just exposure to the alphabet, but also builds rich vocabulary. In addition, this particular book has beautiful illustrations as well as interesting facts that really make the experience of reading come alive.
