Brief Book Summary: This African creation myth tells the story of how life came to exist on earth according to the Yoruba people of west Africa.

I was particularly struck by two things, while reading Anderson's text. Initially, all life exists only in the sky, until Obatala takes it upon him/herself to use his powers to turn the vast space of endless water below him into something valuable.

When I opened my package of hundreds of dollars of book I bought from Amazon the other day, I noticed that this book looked liked a children's book. I was a little disapointed because I wanted it to be a book for ME!
I got over it.
The story and the art were beautiful. I will save it for my little kids and give it to them when they are older so they can appreciate an African creation myth when they can understand it.
