Koale

A timeless and engaging folktale

by Koale on Apr 15, 2009

This is a very well done retelling of a Nigerian folktale which teaches a lesson about wastefulness and taking gifts for granted. The illustrations are excellent and the book lends itself well to dramatic interpretation. A valuable multicultural resource for teachers and parents alike.
