Average: 4.5 (2 votes)

An old woman is in need of help. The other animals all have convenient excuses for not helping while Sikulu & Harambe are the only ones who do. Based on an actual folktale, it is a timeless story that reinforces the beauty of kindness to young children. Children and adults alike come away better informed about life in Africa. This is the first in a series of adventures that follow Sikulu the spider and Harambe the Hippo as they travel to different countries in Africa.

I liked this book. Helping is nice to do. When you do not help people that need help it is not very nce...

A lovely book about one culture in Africa, with interesting facts to share with students about the place and characters in the book. A good morals story to help build citizenship character too. An excellent ice-breaker for introducing cultural diversity, with time left over for open discussion.
