J is for Jamaica
Publisher: Frances Lincoln
Welcome to this whistle-stop tour of Jamaica - from A for Ackee to Z for Zinc. You'll discover what people eat, what they do, the games they play, the places they live, and see some of the plants and animals.
For each letter there's a vibrant photograph providing a window into a different aspect of Jamaican life, as well as a poem. It's an ABC, a poetry book and geography lesson rolled into one!
A welcome addition to a successful series, this is an excellent introduction to Jamaica. Its colours, sights, smells, tastes and bustle are captured by the jewel-sharp colours of Das's photographs and Zephaniah's characteristically jaunty verses that beg to be read aloud. And it's got a proper X - for Xamayca!
