In school one day, a little girl named Linda learns about East Africa and a tall, proud people called the Masai
"If I were a Masai"' Linda wonders, "would I live in an apartment building the way I do now? Would I have a pet hamster of a new pair of sneakers? What would my family be like if I were Masai?"
Linda's observations celebrate things that are different and theings that are the same, as her imagination opens the door to a place where Masai might be I, and I, Masai.
