For you are a Kenyan Child

for you are kenyan childImagine you live in a small Kenyan village, where the sun rises over tall trees filled with doves. You wake to the sound of a rooster’s crow, instead of an alarm clock and the school bus. Your afternoon snack is a tasty bug plucked from the sky, instead of an apple. And rather than kicking a soccer ball across a field, you kick a homemade ball of rags down a dusty road. But despite this, things aren’t that different for a Kenyan child than they would be for an American kid, are they? With so much going on around you, it’s just as easy to forget what your mama asked you to do!

A wonderful book full of the emotions of childhood and the reason of growing up. All children will be able to identify with the main character. Highly recommended. Presence of a few words in Swahili in the text (with translation).
