Read full description of the books:
This book is a children's fiction book. Javaka was first to be born in the Yoruba village and it was his birthday. The whole village came together to with food, guests, bands,the party lasted all night long.
As a literacy teacher, I would use this book when we are learning about the Africa or diversity. We can learn about how they appreciate life and how they often prayed to God to show their appreciation. Children can learn that people celebrate birthdays differently but there is one thing in common, the love we have for each other. It'd also be great to input about the distance from here to there using a map.
Steptoe, the author's cultural background relate to the diverse issue as he wrote many other books so readers can grasp what it's like to be a child in a African community. This text taught me that some cultures are strongly religious and often thank God for everything such as daily weathers, food and anything they encounter throughout their day.
