Book Review Excerpt:
(Reviewed by Randi Payton, Decisive Media Network)
"Nkechi Taifa's children's books, the Three Tales of Wisdom, Shining Legacy, and The Adventures of Kojo and Ama do not seek to change the world, but they do re-shape it, inwardly, for those with small hands and large eyes and equally big dreams. Kojo and Ama travel the world of melanated people, learning from three sources: their mistakes, a kind extended family member named Brother Shaka, and the shrewd family cat Sheba (a thinly disguised Bast). In one of the Wisdom stories, Anansi the Spider from African folklore, not Gaiman's character, miraculously emerges to assist Ayanna (Taifa's take on the ever-present Cinderella story) in her time of need—attending the Harvest Festival in an independent New Afrika. And Shining Legacy spotlights real-life Black superheroes and sheroes from history, particularly freedom fighters who helped advance the Black Liberation Movement."
Nkechi Taifa's extraordinary and original storytelling celebrates history, heroes and heroines of the past through dramatic epic, ballad, legend and saga, all accentuated with moving and rhythmic rhyme. Role models range from Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer and Sojourner Truth, to Malcolm X, Denmark Vesey, Toussaint L'Ouverture, and Marcus Garvey. Shining Legacy is perfect for the young and elder alike, in both family and classroom settings.
Journey with Kojo and Ama through seven adventures combining excitement, fun and suspense with lessons in pride and heritage. The children’s heroic black cat Sheba brings them good luck as they find themselves in settings ranging from an inner city park to the deep South, and from the island of Jamaica to ancient Egypt.

The Adventures of Kojo and Ama was first published in 1992.
