The Festival: The Gift

65 pages7 minutes


Three children are so excited when their teacher tells them they can show and tell about a flag that represents their ethnic heritage during their school’s Flag Day Festival.

As soon as they arrive home, the three children listen intently to their parents’ tales about Africa and their ancestors. While the children absorb all the stories about their culture and family history, they learn about the challenges, accomplishments, and heroic deeds their ancestors accomplished to make the world a better place. But what will happen when the children realize they do not have a flag to share at the festival?

In this colorful book, three children who discover their ethnic heritage for a school project learn to embrace and respect differences in a world where we are all more alike than we think.
