A girl named Disaster by Nancy Farmer is about an 11 year old African girl who leaves her village in Mozambique to find lost relatives in Zimbabwe and escape a forced marriage. It is also about survival, and becoming a woman, about not fitting in, and understanding who you are, and how your spiritual beliefs can both strengthen you and terrify at the same time.
Yet again my book choice is led by Miss K who seems intent on me reading all of her books. I'm not complaining, children's literature is filled with so many treasures, some new to me and old favourites.
what's your favourite children's book? old or new. all recommendations accepted.
