Riassunto: Zinzi, A Child s Journey to Self fulfillment, Giving and Caring by Lynnette C. Velasco is a book that every parent and teacher must give as a gift to every child. Pride, respect and dignity overwhelm each page that interchangeably illustrates and radiates with Zinzi's discovery of her ancestral past roots as a queen in Egypt. You'll particularly fancy the illustrative references throughout this magnificent book that engulf responsibility from the young character, Zinzi, and as she wears full safety gear while skating down the streets of her new neighborhood one day. Her feelings of un-fulfillment in noticing a changed environment leads her to entertain herself and bring life to her neighborhood. The picture of her jumping in front of the setting sun is breathtaking. Later on, you can feel her emotions while she stands gazing over her family while they are engaged in communication at the table, and something many families do not entertain today. She is thinking back in time to when she was an African princess. There's mother talking and laughing with Zinzi while stirring some hot tea after family time. You can just feel the warmness and smell the sweet aroma piping from this beautiful book that is deserving of a Caldecott Award. Reader's will be swept away when able to envision Zinzi reading a book about Egypt. On this magical journey of knowledge, you will share Zinzi s pride as she reinvents herself, best friend Carmen and brother Asi becoming African Kings and Queens. You will also be able to reinact this ceremony that children from 5 to 99 will enjoy.
