A Kwanzaa Story

4 out of 5 stars

Seven brothers argue incessantly. Their father tries to get them to get along while he is alive, but he is unable to. After he dies, he leaves them an inheritance but only if they can complete a task. They must get gold from the silk thread he has left them. The task seems impossible, but there is a way for them to accomplish it.

This is a well-told tale with some beautiful artwork. My students (4th, 5th, and 6th) asked for this to be passed around after we finished read aloud. This is a good story to read to any children who spend a lot of time bickering.
