Seven Spools of Thread
( (by Angela S. Medearis/illus. by Daniel Minter), Whitman $15.95 Score: ) In a village in Ghana, seven brothers quarrel from day to night. When their father dies he leaves his possessions to them only if by sundown they can turn seven spools of colored thread into gold. Although this is called a Kwanzaa story, it is a timeless and memorable tale about working together for a common good. In this case, they create the very special woven Kente cloth that they sell for gold in the market. A memorable pour quoi-style tale with striking woodcuts filled with the symbols of Kwanzaa. 5 & up.
