Moyo and Japera travel down the red dusty road to the next village. There, they will gather under the baobab tree, the Tree of Life. Moyo knows that some days the market wagon stops under the baobab tree. Villagers buy brightly colored cloth and heavy pots and pans. But who will gather today under the baobab tree? Come to a special place---a wondrous gathering place known as the baobab tree, the Tree of Life. Moyo and Japera know that almost anything can happen here. But today? Today the most important and truest stories of all will be told. People will come to hear, to pray, and to sing. And as the children journey to the tree they have only one question: Who will gather under the boabab tree? ...Will you?
Under the Baobab TreeFeatured
As they two siblings walk along they are able to gaze upon gazelles, a termite mound, among other things. While they are walking they both give praise to God for his wonderful creation.
My boys and I adore this book. As I mentioned, the illustrations are incredible and the story itself allows the reader to really think about what they are grateful for. It's a great book to get discussion going with young children about the world around them. I see this book as a must have for a home library. Great story, wonderful illustrations, what more could you ask for?
