Princess Kindness Khumalo by Catherine Amandla Clark, Ed. D. – Book Review and Giveaway

Image result for princess kindness khumalo

Princess Kindness Khumalo is a children’s book surrounding African history. Kindness is a young girl who is very curious, and throughout the book asks her Mother Khumalo many questions. All the while, Mother Khumalo teaches Kindness about her African culture. There are four stories, and each one has a different message.

The book is full of images of dolls to represent all of the characters, as well as the dolls that belong to the characters. There’s an explanation of the words in different languages. I really liked how much African culture was interwoven into a story of a smart little girl who wants to learn about the world. Kindness wants to be kind, and she wants to be well educated in her culture and the moon and the universe. I thought it was a very sweet book that deserves to be read. It has a strong message of love and acceptance that I think is very important.

Buy it on Amazon.
