The illustrations are vivid, and the story is very captivating for young children. This story can hold the attention of small children and they can spend hours staring at the picture. This is a perfect book to be read to a child. I found it particularly effective with children ages 2 to 5.
For that reason, I think the classification as a book for 7 years old and up is in error. My 7 year-old nephew, who attends public schools, is already beyond this reading level, although he did seem to enjoy going through the questions at the end (categorized as reading comprehension, science, art, and spiritual and cultural studies).
There are two noteworthy subtleties that I observe in the book. First the creator god Nyame is never identified as male or female, nor are any of the four magbees (although two are illustrated as being distinctly male while the other two are illustrated as being distinctly female).Read more ›

The profound underlying message of "Sunne's Gift" can be understood by even the youngest listeners and readers about self worth, self love and the consequences of bullying. Yes I see many awards for this one. This book is perfect for your children, grandchildren or someone else's children. Dr. Yawson has perfectly packaged a moral lesson for young ears and malleable minds who will think of Sunne perhaps when faced with a similar real life circumstance.
Treat yourselves to the inspiration behind "Sunne's Gift". Just don't pay any attention to the part about her being a more critical writer than creative. I am convinced that Dr. Yawson could also write award winning novels and movie scripts and I look forward to more from her creative spirit.
I highly recommend this for any child that has or may encounter bullying and for any child that doesn't often see their image projected in a positive light ...... in sum, ANY child would not only benefit from this story, but also find it highly entertaining and beautiful to boot.
Job well done and major kudos to Ms. Yawson for taking swift action to counteract the negativity she personally encountered!!
