World of Children’s Books in Africa
[open]

Do you remember children’s books you read in your childhood? Children around the world read picture books. You might be able to know a new side of Africa through the picture books which bear closely on we human’ s daily lives. Stories you encountered when you were children have an influence on your thoughts and world views. When you read books based on African old stories, you will know how African people see the world.
In this exhibition, we will display African children’s books and illustration panels, which are owned by Japan-Africa Children’s Books Project. As Africa is often talked about with negative images, like famines and conflicts, we'd like you to know more various aspects of Africa through this event. This exhibition is a part of “African Weeks,” an event which will hold in TUFS from Dec 4 to Dec 22, by a student organization in TUFS called Femme Cafe.
