Retelling: In a village in Benin a little girl is asked to take care of her younger sibling. She is proud to have the job and keeps announcing "all by myself." She quickly learns that taking care of a child is a job for many.

Thoughts and feelings: The villagers in the book are quick to identify the child's needs and respond with care. What a wonderful community to be a part of. I hope to teach in a classroom where everyone cares for one another as though it is a shared responsibility.

"Mama's got a zooming machine

Simple text pairs with joyful, up-close illustrations of a mother and her son zooming through the day. Their imaginations transform the wheelchair from a racehorse to an airplane to a ship at sea.

The "zooming machine" and Mama, seen through the child's eyes, are both strong and positive: "Mama has very strong arms from all our zooming."

This would be good for k-3rd grade students, it depicts the popular saying "it take a village" in reference to raising a kid. It is set in an African village and shows how everyone came together to take care of a lost little boy. It was a cute book but it seems to be slightly stereotypical to me. So I would be hesitant to read this aloud in my classroom.
