Lala Salama: A Tanzanian Lullaby

(3) PS Illustrated by Elizabeth Zunon. MacLachlan imagines a Tanzanian woman singing to her baby as they go about their day together, babe secured in a "long colorful kanga" on Mother's back. The volume is not only lyrical and soothing, it's also instructive about daily activities on the banks of Lake Tanganyika. The luminous color-saturated oil paintings are calm and lovely.
