Osa grew up in a west African village of Tos located at the foot of a volcano. In this Caldecott Honor book, she looks back at the night her grandmother explained the origin of the village custom of having the women live in round houses and the men live in square ones.
Ann Grifalconi's bold, dynamic art and rhythmic storytelling recreate this world and make The Village of Round and Square Houses a perfect book for reading aloud.
