The small white child in this picture book feels alien when his family returns to America. He can't wait to go back to the warm African village where he ran free with his friends under a wide sky. . . . The joyful text and Cooper's boldly drawn, glowing oil-wash pictures evoke the intensely physical experience of a small child .

Peter was living in Africa when his parents told him they were moving back home to America. Peter did not understand because Africa was home to him. The book talks about how Peter calls two women mom, his tribal mother and his real mother, and how everyone calls him little brother. The book depicts the life Peter lives in Africa and his life in America. When Peter is living in America he doesn't like the food or wearing shoes but most of all he hates America because it is not Africa. One day his mother gives him a red hat to wear out in the cold, Peter instantly falls in love with the hat for the design on the hat reminds him of Africa. He then wears the hat and never takes it off. Finally the day comes when Peter is able to return to Africa and brings the hat with him until he arrives back in Africa. ( )

Pete a white young boy who grew up in a village in Africa, moves to America because of his father’s job. He misses Africa. Even though his skin color made him different from other children in Africa, it did not matter. To fit in, Pete would leave his hat and his shoes at home just like other villagers. Now, he is in America and it is hard for Pete to adjust. He reminisces about the days in the warm sun playing sun up to sun down. Winter time makes him feel like a statue because he is cold and covered in thick clothes. He would plead with his mother to go back to Africa. Finally, his wish came true. His father got a job offer in Africa, and they returned. Pete is now happy, free, and reconciles with all of his village friends. The beautiful illustrations are done in deep colors and have a chalky texture. These pictures set the tone which reflects Pete’s emotional state. This book identifies with the student who adjusting to a new country after growing up somewhere else. It can also help other students learn about the cultural struggle that immigrants face such as language, friends, and even the little things like weather. Definitely, a must have for the classroom library. ( )

Summary:

The story was of a young Caucasian boy living in Africa where his parents worked. He loved Africa and felt like it was the only home he’d known, his nanny and all his friends were there. When his parents told him they were moving back to America and leavening the land he called home he was sad. They were in America for a short time and the boy missed Africa and his friends very much when he father told him he found another job in Africa he was happy once again to the land he called home.

Personal Reaction:

I loved that this little boy loved Africa and he wanted to do and live as his friends and nanny. Even when he was back in America his life was easier but he wanted to return to Africa any way.

Classroom Extension Ideas:

1. Present a globe to the class and show them where Africa is located.
2. Show the class picture of an African village and how the people live day to day. ( )

When Africa was Peter's home, he slid down anthills and chased chickens with his friends.... When his father's work in Africa is finished and the family returns to America, Peter finds that everything about his new, urban lifestyle is alien to him.... At last Peter and his parents are able to return to Africa.... [The author] lived in Africa for several years and obviously has strong emotional ties to that land and its people. This lends a warmth and credibility to her story, told with a gentle, soothing cadence. The cherubic Peter is intermittently brought in and out of focus in Cooper's affecting oil wash paintings....
