Chrsitiana Chinwe Okechukwu is a prolific author of African wisdom, proverbs and the importance of proverbs in educating members of African societies on how to think, how to behave, and how to have a better life.

Her books not only contain written content to attest to the daily life in East and West Africa. They contain photographs of daily life that deal with knowledge, cooperation, love, beauty, friendship, hope, humor, sorrow, happiness, gratitude, dance, tradition, faith, peace, war, death, and human relationships. These are the same themes found in African proverbial language. Thus came the natural idea of coupling images with proverbs. Together they offer a powerful expression of African life and the universality of human emotions, ideas, and knowledge.

All of her books contain forms of these elements.
