A Story About Afiya by James Berry, Illustrations by Anna Cunha

A Story of Afiya is a wonderful celebration of a little girl who has one dress which records all of her childhood memories. Jamaican poet James Berry, writes this lyrical story and shares the different occassions Afiya remembers when she was a little girl, from the roses in bloom to the day she visits the zoo. Each page is mesmerising with rendering illustrations from Anna Cunha. They work so well with the romantic, dreaming feel of the story.

Berry writes a story so creatively and celebrates expressive arts at it’s finest. This book is full of imagination and is a wonderful discussion point to show children memories are important. I can only imagine the art and craft ideas too which can come from this book.

This book make us smile, it made us dream and it made us talk of our own memories as a family. I absolutely adore A Story About Afiya!
