HASH(0xa5d3a054) out of 5 stars Charming and Evocative Little Book June 17 2011
By Brett H - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is quite a short book of about 60 pages covering 18 well known West African folk tales. Almost all these traditional stories involve animals of one sort or another, be they tortoises, leopards, elephants, dogs, goats, camels, crocodiles etc. All but a couple of the stories are accompanied by a black and white line illustration and they are reprinted from a book originally published in the late 1950s.

Examples of the stories are The Story of a Farmer and Four Hyenas, The Greedy but Cunning Tortoise, The Magic Crocodile and a Good Fortune in Camels.

Personally I found these stories quite charming and very evocative of the part of the world they originate from. I imagine children will love them and read this little volume again and again. Perfect for bedtime reading and the stories are about the right length for this.

HASH(0xa5d3a6d8) out of 5 stars Great read along book. March 30 2014
By NecoShaeShae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this book as a Kwanzaa gift for my son. Its a great read along book, and an awesome way to reiterate the African Culture to children The stories leave room for conversation and dialogue between the adult and child, and often after reading these stories my son and God children have many questions. Its a good way to pass the morals and truths of our ancestors on to our children. Id recommend to people of any color but most definitely to families of African descent and heritage.

HASH(0xa5d3a384) out of 5 stars Good price! Nov. 24 2009
By Rebecca S. Gatlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I do not recommend paying more than $3 for this book because it is small, short, and not well bound. However, the stories are decently interesting and my son loved it.
