The Gift of the Sun


All Thulani wants is a simple life basking in the sun. Tired of milking the cow, he exchanges it for a goat … the goat for a sheep … the sheep for three geese … until all he has left is a pocket of sunflower seeds! But the sunflower seeds feed the hens, the hens lay more eggs than ever, and before long Thulani is enjoying the gift of his new-found fortune. Dianne Stewart’s charming story and Jude Daly’s delightful illustrations will enchant children and adults alike.

A delightful South African tale by Dianne Stewart.
