I recently received a copy of a super cute book called “Sikulu and Harambe: By the Zambezi River,” written by Kunle Oguneye. This cute story is said to be the African version of The Good Samaritan Story. Sikulu is a spider and Harambe is a hippo. In the village of Sioma, they encounter an older woman who needs help. The other animals avoid helping her, with different excuses, but Sikulu and Harambe do what’s right.

It’s a great story to read to your little ones! My kids wanted me to read it again and again. I can’t wait to see what Kunle Oguneye comes out with next!

Kunle Oguneye has generously offered to give away one copy of “Sikulu and Harambe: By the Zambezi River.”
