Book Review – The African Orchestra

by Wendy Hartmann (Jacana) ISBN 9781431423392

This children’s book is beautifully illustrated with captivating images of nature.

The story takes the form of a poems and attempts to describe the various sounds one encounters in Africa. The metaphorical nature of the book and its attempts to illustrate onomatopoeia are lost on younger children, but it remains a delightful and cathartic read for older children and adults.
