Reader Reviews

Great Art-In-Culture Resource for Children!
Although limited to Ghanian culture, this interactive publication serves as a useful resource tool and springboard in discovering the significance of symbols often found in African objects and textiles. Several Adinkra stencils symbolic of specific proverbs, social concepts and/or ideas are contained therein; they can be effectively used in craft-related stenciling and art activities. (I used STENCILS: WEST AFRICA: GHANA for a special Social Studies/Language Arts unit I developed for my first graders and for a Grades 2-5 African Heritage After School Program. The use of these materials and information contained therein has proven educational, enlightening, and stimulating for my young learners!) West Africa: Ghana (Ancient and Living Cutlures) is worth the purchase for educators, parents, and/or those interested learning about other cultures!

Hungry For More
I appreciate the book being available with the Adinkra stencils. I enjoyed projects and the suggestions in the book but I would have liked to have more than 16 stencils. This is a great book of African heritage and I was excited that it was available.
