Additional Information

Family. Culture. Traditions. These are important building blocks that can help children grow in confidence and self-awareness. As a mother and an author who proudly claims her Nigerian heritage, Ozi Okaro understands the importance of teaching her children the customs of their ancestors. Her debut children’s book, The Big Ceremony, offers an engaging introduction to a vivid cultural experience of her people—a traditional Nigerian wedding.

In this lighthearted and fun children’s book, young readers get to join six-year-old Cheta and her best friend, Kosi, as they attend the wedding of Kosi’s cousin. Delighted to each wear her own stunning, specially designed dress, the girls can hardly contain their excitement as they experience the lavish festivities and witness the captivating rituals that are part of both their families’ African heritage.

An excellent choice for teachers and librarians looking to introduce students to the customs of an African country, this is also a great gift for children of Nigerian decent who want to learn more about their own culture.

This is a wonderfully written book for young and not so young readers. It gently introduces us to a bit of the Nigerian culture through the eyes of a child. The illustrations are vivid and fun. There is a dearth of clever informative books for kids on other cultures. The Big Ceremony hits the mark in a big way. It is reminiscent of the books by Lenore Look and Grace Lin. Kosi and her friend Cheta are endearing characters who have managed to accurately introduce us to the essence of a Nigerian Wedding celebration. I loved it! I cannot wait to see where they will take us next...
Loved this beautiful book! What a wonderful way to teach your children about the different traditions families have. I enjoyed reading it very much and can't wait to share it with others. Traditions are so important and I love when they are passed on from generation to generation. So important!
Colorful and creative story-telling that illustrates the richness and beauty of African culture. Its a great read for kids of African descent living in the diaspora, and those interested in learning about African culture.
