This book would be most suitable for use with younger children because it contains very little factual depth. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the poems, and think they would work well as a way to help kids remember information about the various kingdoms, heroes, and tribes of ancient Africa. My favorites are the two poems about the Maasai peoples and the Mali kingdom; these and many of the other subjects in the book are very rarely introduced or learned about in elementary schools.
