Africa is My Home: The Cover! The Book Trailer!

While I can’t show you Robert Byrd‘s gorgeous interior art for Africa is My Home (coming out this fall from Candlewick), I can show you the cover in the following book trailer. And if you are at BEA, do stop by Candlewick’s booth for a more comprehensive look or, even better, come to my Thursday 3:30 signing of lithos (stapled F&Gs) of the complete 64 page book. (ETA: if the following intrigues you, the book is available for preorder hereherehere, or at your favorite local bookstore.)

    Congrats, Monica. Just talked about Margru today with a first grade group visiting Oberlin’s Little Red Schoolhouse. I’m looking forward to being able to share the picture book.
