Sikulu and Harambe by the Zambezi River
Allfolktales.com reviews Sikulu and Harambe by the Zambezi River: An African version of the Good Samaritan Story, by Kunle Ogunneye and illustrated by Bruce McCorkindale.
I first learnt about this book when I received an
email from the author early in 2008. I wrote
about it on the blog even though at the time, I had not read the book.
I visited the book's website and was won over by the illustration. My
opinion since I wrote that blog post remains the same - it is heartening
to see children's books on African folktales with great illustrations
being published. As I have written in the past, I am still of the opinion
that the lack of good illustrations in the African story books I had growing
up have contributed to the difficulty
in recalling the stories.
Here's a video of the author reading the book.
Even though we have read this book online, it is one I will definitely buy for our book collection.
2006 - 2009
