Nneka†s little brother Chidi is always saying that his favorite color is blue.
When Nneka asks him why, he replies, †because the sky is blue and my best shirt
is blue.† So Nneka decides to teach him about other colors seen in their
village † red for the chiefs' caps, yellow for the gari they eat, brown for the
okwe game board † and to tell him why she likes them. Ifeoma Onyefulu here
introduces young readers to a rainbow palette, African style, with warm words
and photographs offering a colorful glimpse of Nigerian village life.
