These stories, written in verse, are designed to be read out loud. They are full of suspense, thrills, emotion and fun and make for a superbly expressive read. But they were written for so much more than that. The world gets busier every day and parents need to create opportunities to build strong relationships with their children and to share their values with them in a fun and creative way. The stories use African animals to talk about issues that might, be diffi cult for a child to express on a personal level. This creates an opportunity for the reader or parent to relate the issues in the stories to the child's real-life experiences. Each page contains delightful illustrations.
