Editorial Reviews

'Amid the children's observations and musings, Stiegemeyer (Seven Little Bunnies) interweaves the refrain "But who will gather today under the baobab tree?" A preface page introduces the baobab tree, describing its practical and spiritual value to the African savanna's human and animal communities. Understated lyricism combines with uncluttered, foreground-focused depictions of creation in this prose hymn of thanksgiving, prayer, and praise.' - Publishers Weekly Review
