My Painted House

Book of the Week: My Painted House, My Friendly Chicken, And Me

This book is a little young for my kids, but I just adore it. It’s by Maya Angelou!

It’s super cute…full of bright, colorful photographs. The story takes place in a village in South Africa, with a little 8 year old girl named Thandi, whose best friend is a chicken. It’s told in the voice of Thandi, and tells what her life is like in her village.

It’s a fascinating read of a very colorful African culture. I love the voice of this young child…her wording is so childlike and real. The painted houses are so gorgeous! Highly recommend this fun book to read with your kiddos!
