In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

I had to share this book again. I was chatting with my assistant about how this book is one of those ideal books that can fit so many research units in addition to numerous topics…
I love the voice shared in this book. The photographs are poignant, beautiful, and a perfect fit with the gorgeous text. I’ve shared this book for years as a world awareness book to share with students.
When I share this in the future, I now also have a video – embedded below – with some more beautiful images to view… Such a fantastic title…
Goodreads Summary: “Full color photographs. “Hello, Stranger-Friend” begins Maya Angelou’s story about Thandi, a South African Ndebele girl, her mischievous brother, her beloved chicken, and the astonishing mural art produced by the women of her tribe. With never-before-seen photographs of the very private Ndebele women and their paintings, this unique book shows the passing of traditions from parent to child and introduces young readers to a new culture through a new friend.”
