My Rows and Piles of Coins

Tolowa M. Mollel (A) and E. B. Lewis (ILT)

List Price: $17.99 (Hardcover - Tanzania / Thoughtful Child - 1999)

Description: "I emptied my secret money box, arranged the coins in piles and the piles in rows . . ." The market is full of wonderful things, but Saruni is saving his precious coins for a red and blue bicycle. How happy he will be when he can help his mother carry heavy loads to market on his very own bicycle--and how disappointed he is to discover that he hasn't saved nearly enough! Determination and generosity are at the heart of this satisfying tale, set in Tanzania and illustrated with glowing watercolors that capture the warmth of Saruni's family and the excitement of market day. (32 pigs) Ages 4-7

Ashay says, "I love stories like this where a young child is so thoughtful and concerned for his mother. Just real simple beautiful thoughts and deeds. Let's read more of these kind of stories to our children. And have I told you lately, I love the Mr. Lewis watercolor illustrations. Must have this award winning book for the classroom and library."
