This book... is amazing...
I wasn't sure what I would think of it honestly.
I was very pleasantly surprised and felt like a child being transported back in time to hear an amazing and inspiring story. It opens your heart and takes you on a journey that you can't put down!
"African rebels. Stolen girls. Illegal logging. A dangerous cobra. Join eleven year old Kiisa and her messenger bird, Njili, on a thrilling rescue mission in the heart of Africa and learn with them the true meaning bravery and the value of forgiveness in the second page-turning book in the JA Myhre's The Rwendigo Tales" ~ From the back of the book
It has turned out to be a book I really have enjoyed and one that I feel should be required in schools all over the world. It shows culture, it shows a girl who learns more who she is even though she didn't want to be the one to stand out, it shows beauty.
I can't wait to have my daughter read this. Both on a homeschooling level but on a mum level as well. This is an easy read and something that doesn't include too much information but just enough that it is appropriate for any child who is able to understand it. I would suggest a child that is in mid elementary level.
I like this book not just for educational purposes as well. It is a great story. It is inspirational.
I really like that as well, and urge for you to buy it as well, because proceeds of the book actually go back to help children in Africa who are struggling with education and poverty. Babies who have been born with HIV to be able to get food and maybe a book to read.

I personally really want to review the other books in these series. They are so awesome.
I haven't found many books, like this one, that both adults and children will walk away with a lot from... and this is one of them. I can see myself and my children, especially my daughter, reading and re reading this book. Easily adding to the "Via Bella Top Reads" this year!
