Sa Toya – Amazon Reviewer.

I received this book from the Goodreads First Reads scheme. I have an 8 year old bro and he thoroughly enjoyed it. Read it a few time since. I always encourage to read as many different books as possible. He really enjoys a good book.This is a great book for ids illustrated by kids and the author. It’s a refreshing look at the Golden rule. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”My issues: What is a shongololo? I know now but would’ve liked to during reading. Why is he ‘good-for-nothing’?I know it’s a common saying but he’s only little and at that age a lot of children aren’t experts in an field and everyone is always good for and at something.My brother was a bit concerned of the little boys’s and his family’s potential ostracism. More of what I like! The culture differences shown. I like learning about other cultures and I think all children should be exposed to other ways of life. Overall it’s a good book for early readers…5-7 and perfect for reading out loud.
