Whilst Simi's parents are away, she has the opportunity of staying with her Grandmother who lives in Lagos. There she is introduced to the world of traditional animal stories told by her grandmother.

When I saw the bright and colourful cover of this book, I was keen to read on and when I read the preface which states: "I hope this book appeals to the child in you," I was enticed even further.

The descriptive quality is excellent and I found myself completely engaged visually.

Although the book has a traditional ambience, The themes of the benefits of outdoor play, the sense of awe and wonder and family values are increasingly valuable within our modern society. 

We learn a lot about everyday life in Jalingo and the animal stories which make up the bulk of the text contain messages for life.

At the end of the book Simi's grandmother encourages her to go and play outdoors with her new friends in order to "make new memories", and the book concludes with "In the eyes of a child, life is always so beautiful, she thought to herself. It felt good to be reminded of that."

Indeed this book made ME feel good and it is perfect for grandmothers to read aloud to their grandchildren.
