Masai and I by Virginia Kroll

A little girl learns about the Masai tribe at school and daydreams about what her life would have been like if she had been born into the tall, proud East African tribe. Comparing her life and theirs, she celebrates both the differences and the similarities and she learns that she has her own spiritual and even physical kinship with them. `The text and pictures achieve a perfect harmony ... The comparisons are always positive ... A joy of a book' Junior Education.
