The moral of the story, how a simple dinner became a feast when "all their friends" were invited to share it, is neither overly expressed nor too subtle for little ones. The illustrations are bright and colorful, this book will attract a lot of attention :)
Please note that it's a bit wordy, probably suited for the older of the 4-8 crowd. The same advice *definitely* goes for the supplemental information at the back of the book, all sorts of things on how people live in Kenya and a few simple Swahili phrases and, of course, a recipe :)
It’s a great story of sharing, generosity, and community. Highly recommend for children of all ages.
I liked the back of the book as much as the story itself as it explains life in Kenya, including a map, some Kiswahili greetings and words and a recipe to try for those whom wish to taste a bit of Africa too.
A great addition and introduction to a cultural collection for kids.
