A tour of day to day life in Kenya is led by the spirited young protagonist as he neglects his cow-herding duties to visit adults around his village. Uh-oh! He visits too long, because the cows are missing!

This warmly illustrated masterpiece is very well crafted. Swahili vocabulary words march seamlessly through Ana Juan’s gorgeous landscapes, and she gives Kelly Cunnane’s characters mischievous expressions that precisely fit the joyful, celebratory tone of the book. Since it is a longer text, this book would function best for older storytime attendants.
