From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. This easy-to-read (and learn) folktale will be a hit with young audiences for its direct action and elegantly circular structure. Beatrice sets out for her granddad's, balancing a bunch of bananas on her head, only to have the giraffe's tail sweep the fruit into the river. The apologetic giraffe gives Beatrice a bunch of flowers instead, but those are ruined by a swarm of bees. The bees give her a piece of honeycomb, and so on through one animal encounter after another, until, by the time Beatrice reaches her destination, bananas have come round again. To go with Laird's spare, present-tense retelling, Pichon provides brightly lit cartoon scenes featuring a smiling, brown-skinned child in a series of generic jungle backdrops. Aside from the African animals that Beatrice encounters, there is no indication of the story's origins, but the tale doesn't need a strong attachment to a particular culture or teller to be thoroughly enjoyable.
