"Insightful. Substantive. Makes a major contribution to a sparse literature of early childhood and family ethnographies in Africa written from a collaborative 'decolonized' perspective." -- Valerie Polakow, author of Lives on the Edge: Single Mothers and Their Children in the Other America"Remarkably fine coverage of social and economic variation as it exists in Kenya. A truly superb descriptive feat!" -- Philip L. Kilbride, coauthor of Street Children in Kenya: Voices of Children in Search of a Childhood
