I thought the book was good to teach kids a lesson on learning to help other people in need. I have read the book three times and will read it again!

My 3 year old son and I LOVE the story of Sikulu and Harambe! We've only had the book for 3 days and he has asked me to read it about a dozen times. I can't wait to see what other adventures they take part in in the future!

My family is moving to Zambia next year. It was fun to read about the Lozi people. We will live near the Lozi. It helped me learn that I should help someone even if I am busy. Thank you for writing this book.

I think the story's moral is to show kindness and help others while in need even when you might be doing something.

This is an excellent introduction to African culture and folklore. It will help teach African children in Diaspora the relevance and importance of their culture.

“A good multicultural story with a strong problem. It has a strong moral lesson and offers a glimpse of an African culture.”
