Summary

Janjay is an energetic, smart, and curious little girl living in the West African country of Liberia.
She is responsible for collecting clean water for the household on a regular basis, but one day finds herself distracted by afternoon fun with a friend, which causes her to neglect her chores. She later discovers the seriousness of her actions and learns a real life lesson about disobedience and the important role she plays in her family.
Through humor and the use of local language, this story brings to light the global issue of access to clean-water sanitation that resonates with millions of girls around the world.

Engaging, educational and authentic. Five Stars!

Would you consider the audio edition of Janjay to be better than the print version?

I have both the print and audio versions of this book and love both. The audio version has the benefit of authentic Liberian accents for each character which really brings the story to life.

What other book might you compare Janjay to, and why?

Janjay successfully combines an engaging story with an important message about clean water issues in West Africa. I have not come across anything else like it. More please!

Which character – as performed by Chrislene Bright – was your favourite?

Janjay is a great character, full of life and figuring out the world in her own way. I also have a soft spot for her little brother, Joe-Joe.
