This book is an example of an African folktale. While reading other folktales, along with this one, students can learn what traditional folktales look like. I would follow up this lesson with an activity of writing our own folktales. It would force the students to use their imagination.

Fun African folktale about why spiders have a narrow waist and eight legs.
