Sikuli the spider and Harambe the hippo take a trip around Africa. They see a woman who needs help and Sikuli and Harambe are the only ones willing to help her. This is a wonderful story that teaches children to be helpful to others. My nephew enjoyed it a lot. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977738248, Hardcover)

This is the first in a series of adventures that follow Sikulu the spider and
Harambe the Hippo as they travel to different countries in Africa. In this story,
they are in the village of Sioma where they encounter an old woman in need of help.
The other animals all have convenient excuses for not helping while Sikulu &
Harambe are the only ones who do.
Based on an actual folktale, it is a great story that reinforces the beauty of
kindness to young children. The book also offers a glossary of terms and weaves
information about Zambian culture into the story. Children and adults alike come
away better informed about life in Zambia.
