Ashanti to Zulu: African Traditions is a 1976 children's book written by Margaret Musgrove and illustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon. It was Musgrove's first book, but the Dillons were experienced artists and this book won them the second of their two consecutive Caldecott Medals. (The first was for Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears: A West African Tale.)
The book features twenty-six illustrations of native African peoples, each accompanied by a short vignette describing one of the customs of that particular people.
