The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the UKLA Book Awards 3-6 age category 2014. Authentic setting drawn from the author's own experience, this is a wonderfully fun introduction for small children to a completely different culture.

Synopsis

Don't Spill the Milk! by Stephen Davies, Christopher Corr

Up the downy dunes, across the dark, wide river and up and down the steep, steep mountain, Penda lovingly carries a bowl of milk to her father in the grasslands. But will she manage to get it there without spilling a single drop?
