Mama Miti is a fast read which intermingles folk and tribal atmosphere with values which can relate to many such as self-reliance and strength. The illustrations look as though they were scrapbook together which gives it a unique feel. The language is rich but purposeful and the moral of the story resounds for children and adults alike. Though the plot falls a bit flat with the same advice being given time and again children also learn countless uses for various trees and impresses the importance of nature.
