We love reading books in the May house. We brought a few of our favorites along with us with the thought that books were heavy and might be hard to come by here, or that they might be expensive. They’re not too expensive, about what it would cost in the States.
When we were last in Nairobi, we went to a good bookstore at the suggestion of Roy and Jackie and we found our “new favorite”.
It’s called Tricky Tortoise by Mwenye Hadithi and Adrienne Kennaway.
It has the best double spread watercolor pictures…it has animals, a moral lesson and great writing. They have also written:
Handsome Hog, Lazy Lion, Greedy Zebra, Enormous Elephant and more. We’ll slowly work to build these into our collection as well.
We had been enjoying reading Tricky Tortoise, and on our first day at school when I was looking at the classroom library, there it was! Yea!
