Our intention is to acquire and make available ALL picture books featuring indigenous people and people of color published in the U.S. since 2002, including reprints. Inclusion of a title in the collection DOES NOT EQUAL recommendation. See our related readings page for suggested links for evaluating books.
"Hi, I'm Mbutu. I live in a small, quiet village with my mother and father. I love the people and sounds of my village and I especially love mango season. Have you ever had a mango? It is so good, juicy, and sweet. Mango season is my favorite time of year. That's why the story is called Mbutu's mangos. It's all about my adventures during mango season when I try to save the mangos from falling on the ground and rotting. I learned a lot that mango season, so I'm sharing my story with you"--Back cover
