Show Me 5 Saturday - OOPS!!

Sorry all I just realized that I didn't post my Saturday meme. I apologize. I worked a full day and I had to take time to prepare my blog tour for this morning. I am posting it now though I don't know if I will get any participants at this point.
Okay here is how it works...

Each Saturday You will post the answer to these questions. The number indicates the number of answers you will provide.

1 Book you read and/or reviewed this week
2 Words that describe the book
3 Settings where it took place or characters you met
4 Things you liked and/or disliked about it
5 Stars or less for your rating?

After each of you complete the meme on your blog add a comment here and I will put a link on my post.

Here is my better late than never post.

1 Book: 14 Cows for America by Carmen Agra Deedy in collaboration with Wilson Kimeli Naiyomah

2 Words: Healing, beautiful

3 Settings/Characters: Kenya - in a remote village where the Maasi live, Kimeli - the Maasai who has been in New York and witnessed the Sept 11th tragedy, Cows - 14 to be exact which are an offering of great proportions

4 Likes/Dislikes: I love the beautiful illustrations done by Thomas Gonzalez - he is amazing, the healing properties in the story teach so much to adults and children, I love that this is a true story it is just so touching, I loved how giving the Maasai were and the symbolic nature of their generosity

5 Stars: Oh absolutely! Everyone should get this for themselves and their children

Thanks to Natasha at MawBooks for making sure others knew about this book!
