The GA Picture Alphabet
Nii Ayikwei Parkes, Illustrated by Avril Filomeno
A is for Akpakpa, B is for Baa... Ga is the beautiful, poetic language that lent the word kwashiokor to global medical vocabulary. Working alongside Peruvian illustrator Avril Filomeno, renowned Ghanaian novelist and poet, Nii Ayikwei Parkes has created a playful universe in which the pictures tell a story as you learn the letters of the Ga alphabet. Simple and fun, this one-of-a-kind book gives children the basics needed to master this musical language of West Africa.
