Have you ever wondered...

...Why spiders have thin legs? Or why turtles have cracked shells? What use is a promise? 

Journey with us around Africa in Ada-Ari's retelling of time-honored African folktales.

You will meet new friends - Jabu, Anansi and Mbekwu - and learn valuable lessons about sharing, following instructions, and keeping one's promise. 

Each book includes a geographical lesson about the region in Africa that the story comes from and cultural cards with lessons about the tribe that created the story.
