About the Book
Sikulu the spider and Harambe the hippo are heading to the river for a drink of water when, they encounter an old woman in need of help. The other animals all have convenient excuses for not helping while Sikulu & Harambe are the only ones who do.
Based on an actual folktale, it is a great story that reinforces the beauty of kindness to young children. The book also offers a glossary of terms and weaves information about Zambian culture into the story. Children and adults alike come away better informed about life in Zambia. This is the first in a series of adventures that follow Sikulu the spider and Harambe the Hippo as they travel to different countries in Africa.
