8 posts | 7 read | 3 to read
In an African village live seven brothers who make family life miserable with their constant fighting. When their father dies, he leaves an unusual will: by sundown, the brothers must make gold out of seven spools of thread. If they fail, they will be turned out as beggars.

In addition to doing a lot of Christmas reading to my nieces over the past few days, they asked if we could expand to other holidays celebrated by their friends. This is the first selection of Kwanzaa books. The tagged book was a beautiful story. The principles behind the holiday are fascinating. #WinterGame #TheFilthyAnimals

Addison_Reads I read Seven Spools and really loved it. The illustrations were beautiful and I loved learning more about Kwanzaa. 1mo
Come-read-with-me @Addison_Reads I didn‘t know that much about the holiday and, like you, loved learning about the holiday! 1mo

I loved this book! Such a wonderful story and the pictures were beautiful. #wintergames is increasing my knowledge of other cultures and their winter traditions and I'm loving it. 💚

I‘m not familiar with picture books but found these for #ChristmaHannuKwanzaaPictureBooks #DearDecember @Eggs

(does this count for a participation point for #WinterGames #ReadNosedReindeer @StayCurious @Clwojick ?)

Not what I was expecting but still a good story about working together toward a common goal.
