Melos Kingdom : Interactive Children’s Storybook With Scripture, And Africa
Step into an African adventure and take a walk on the wild side with Queen Nzinga and princess Melo in Melo’s Kingdom!
Melo’s Kingdom is African storytelling at its best. Anthropomorphic characters share age-old wisdom supported by Scripture in a fun, colorful, and interactive reading experience. Follow Melo and her friends, Kiboko, Aza, Zenzo, Ganga, Bulu, and Tambo, as she learns how to become a good leader under the tutelage of Queen Nzinga.
The cover of the hardcover children’s book is decorated in bright colors, and friendly animal faces. The African princess, Melo, welcomes all readers with wide open arms and a brimming smile. The title is written in a fun African font.
The inside pages of the book are printed in full-color. A presentation page in the front of the book allows you to address this book to your own princess. Each story is illustrated with delightful images of Melo and her animal friends, and each ending will surprise and delight the listeners. At the end of each story you will find a short prayer followed by two interactive activity pages that pose thought-provoking questions, fun activities, Bible verses, and interesting facts.
The preface and the book are written by professor Thuli Madonsela. Her accolades include one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, Forbes Africa’s Person of the Year in 2016, and Forbes Africa’s 50 Most Powerful Women. She has received numerous international awards for her work in social justice. Prof Thuli rose from humble beginnings, and she is passionate about social justice and storytelling. In Melo’s Kingdom, she intertwines pearls of wisdom with biblical principles to encourage children to embrace the idea of community – a word we call UBUNTU in South Africa. Other collaborators on this project include her daughter, Wenzile Msimanga, son-in-law, Khulekile Msimanga, and Khulekile’s father and language specialist Zedehiah Msimanga.
Peek into the African continent’s stories and values when you read the adventures of Melo’s Kingdom to your children and cultivate an appreciation of world cultures. Gather the kids each night and pass on the importance of love, kindness, respect, integrity, courage, and believing in yourself through the tradition of African storytelling.
