Nzambi Mpungu, who made the earth and sky promises the Crab that he can come back the next day for his head. Filled with pride, Crab invites the other creatures to come and witness the making of what will be the best head. But Crab is shamed and punished for his pride: he gets no head at all. So today, he shuttles sideways from embarrassment, and can only push his eyes out of his shell. This book is good for Pre-k to kindergarten. This book would be for a lesson about pride, You could teach the children about pride, and have them right down what they think pride is, and when they found theseselves being to proud. It is important to teach the difference between being proud of yourself and having to much pride.
