Every day many children in Kenya run miles to school--so does Ndito. From her village in the highlands she runs barefoot, across ridges and down hills, under baobab trees and through tall grass. As she runs she calls up animal dreams to keep her company--she imagines she's floating like a gazelle and soaring like a crane. Anderson's text and van der Merwe's paintings evoke the sights, sounds and the feeling of Africa. Full color.
