"Warmly written and illustrated by Maria McNaught, Grandma's Ashanti Cloth is a warmly colored picture book story about a young African-American boy who almost loses his family's cultural heirloom of an Ashanti cloth - symbol of the tribe and the land where his ancestors came from. Grandma's Ashanti Cloth is recommended as a powerful story about the importance of learning about one's heritage and treasuring the traditions that one's family and ancestors hold dear." said.

"I am a white 1st grade school teacher. I thought this was an amazing story that went to the heart of black disenfranchisement in America. I also thought the book pointed the way back, to black pride and family history.
This is a story about a child in school having to do a report on his ancestry, not actually knowing what that ancestry was or where it would lead him. The child discovers his roots in a rich history that provides roots for self pride and grounding.
My first graders loved the story, and I am sure that older children would also.

"This is a very informative and helpful book. I have learned a lot and seriously recommend that everyone read it!" said.

"This is a lovely children's book about a young African-American boy finding out about his family ties to Africa. I feel it is also a great introduction for children to the wonders of libraries and the knowledge and helpfulness of librarians. The illustrations are warm and colorful. There are even questions added for a lively discussion in a classroom. Kudos to Maria McNaught for such a thoughtful book." said.
