Book Review - Dudu’s Basket

by Dianne Stewart (Jacana) ISBN 9781431423286 

This beautifully illustrated children’s book follows the journey of a basket which has been woven by a young Zulu girl named Dudu. 

Her grandfather tells her that according to the Zulu Proverb, the first basket one weaves should be given away, or else the weaver might never get around to making another one. As the basket makes its rounds, we are introduced to different people and the different uses they have for the basket. 

This is a great read for young children as the illustrations not only capture their attention, but introduces them to different cultures as well.
