African Folktale Children's Book

Children’s Book based on African Folktale –
For the elementary level.

Kunle Oguneye, author of the Children’s Book “Sikulu & Harambe” recently contacted Trudy and asked if we would review his book and pass it on to the Montessori community.

The story is set in Zambia and used to teach children about kindness. We would recommend it to children age 7+, as it does include an element of fantasy, not suited for the primary-age level (early childhood – sensitive periods). It makes for an easy reader for the older child, as well as a fun and interesting look at the South African culture through traditional folktale.
