it was amazing

This book is an auto-biography of a tribal member from Kenya, and is apart of the WinterPromise Homeschool Curriculum that I purchased for my daughter. Let me just say, this book is FABULOUS! It is the very best read-aloud I have read to my daughter yet, and trust me there have been many. We were both glued to every word of this book. We later searched for youtube videos to gain more information on the blood and milk drink the Maasai enjoy. We also found some videos of the author, and were very impressed with his message and with the strides he has made in his own life and for the village in Kenya he represents. Every home and school must have this book!
