The magazine has a great review of 14 Cows for America up on their site:
This astonishing new picture book tells the incredibly moving true story of a small Masai village in Kenya whose residents banded together to send aid to America in the aftermath of 9/11. The book never dwells on the details of the disaster, nor do the strikingly realistic paintings depict anything associated with the terrorist attacks. In fact, the residents of the village in which this story is set only hear about the events through word of mouth. This is a story about the spirit of goodwill and the best parts of the human spirit–that's just as affecting for adults as it is for kids. —Ages 7 and up
