The most interesting little note that I've stumbled across so far was inside of Catch That Goat!,by POLLY ALAKIJA.
This is a Barefoot Book which is a company I am very familiar with as offering most excellent story choices from a multicultural perspective. Since we have a multi-cultural family, this is something I have definitely taken note of. Truly, they have some pretty awesome books!
In case you are wondering (which I would assume you are!) it is a story involving a young girl who loses her goat in a market place. It's quite a crafy and clever little goat who ends up with various of the merchant's merchandise before he is finally caught. The story also involves counting down from 10 to 1 making it rather catchy and entertaining on many levels.
At any rate, the copyright for this book is on the very last page, instead of the very first as you would normally see. It is copyrighted 2002, by Polly Alakija with the following note:
"The moral right of Polly Alakija to be idenfied as the author and illustrator of this work has been asserted."So don't forget it. POLLY ALAKIJA wrote Catch That Goat!.
More to come soon!
The adventure continues......... whee!!!
