My Story Book of Values for the African Child
Age Range: 9 – 12 years
My Story Book of Values for the African Child is born out of the desire to meet the needs of the present day children in Africa. Many of them seem to hold the adults, especially parents, responsible for their predicament. They usually claim that the adults have failed them, because the adults are no longer available to provide the required home support and guidance.
In the African traditional setting, storytelling used to be an avenue through which morals and societal values were inculcated in children. Hence, this book serves as a means of bridging the gap by reaching out to children through stories that illustrate the 12 key living values such as Cooperation, Freedom, Happiness, Honesty, Humility, Love, Peace, Respect, Responsibility, Simplicity, Tolerance and Unity.
