Reviews - What do customers think about Sikulu and Harambe by the Zambezi River: An African version of the Good Samaritan Story?

Bridget's Review  Oct 31, 2009
Sikuli the spider and Harambe the hippo take a trip around Africa. They see a woman who needs help and Sikuli and Harambe are the only ones willing to help her. This is a wonderful story that teaches children to be helpful to others. My nephew enjoyed it a lot.
Entertainingly informative.  Sep 26, 2009
This is a wonderfully entertaining book that teaches children the value of kindness even when it may be inconvenient to be kind.
As a Mom, a lover of children and an African, I love that it imparts positive values and reinforces values that are, frighteningly, being eroded by selfishness and a quest for material things.
I have given every niece and nephew this book (along with the soft toys for the younger ones) and intend to give it to as many children as possible!!!!
We are looking forward to many more adventures of Sikulu & Harambe, and can barely wait for them to travel through Nigeria :-)
Entertaining and Educational  Feb 7, 2009
All 3 of my children LOVE this book (ages 1,3,and 4). It's never too early to start instilling the values that this story teaches. They love the illustrations and ask a lot of questions. It is a good way to start a discussion about kindness and compassion. From the day we got it, they have insisted on reading it over and over. We have 2 overflowing bookshelves, and they always manage to know just where it is.
A Cultural Delight!  Dec 16, 2008
What a beautifully illustrated book of a local village in Zambia for children of all ages! I especially enjoyed the glossary at the end of the book, learning about Zambia, the local animals, the Ku-omboka Ceremony and the local culture. The website is also a MUST visit, it has games, videos, trivia and most importantly, an audio version of the book with the delightful author's accent. It makes you feel like you're in Zambia!

This book is not only about a Good Samaritan story, it also teaches us about Zambia! I can't wait for the next Sikulu & Harambe adventure!
Great way to keep connected with our heritage and values  Dec 10, 2008
My family grew up in Zimbabwe but my brother's kids have never been to Africa so I bought them the Sikulu and Harambe book and toys to give them a taste of Africa. They've had the book read to them every night since I gave it to them at Thanksgiving, and they have a neat sharing "deal" with the toys: my nephew owns Sikulu (he calls it Sikuya!) and my niece owns Harambe, but they designate times when they swap for a while so that they each have time with the other toy. What a great way to reinforce the compassionate values the book promotes!
