I found this book when I was searching for a story from Kenya. I was putting together a unit on Kenya for third graders and came across this book and fell in love with it. The mother and son have a sweet relationship and the message of sharing and community come through in the end. Wonderful illustrations and several reference pages at the end of the story. Mama Panya's recipe for pancakes are in there too. I made them and passed them around for my presentation.

I loved this book and used it for my unit and plan on purchasing it for my classroom in the future. A wonderful story!!

This book is true to the Barefoot goal of teaching about a global society. Young children will relate to the simple tale with the universal theme of sharing.
