Up the downy dunes, across the dark, wide river and up and down the steep, steep mountain, Penda lovingly carries a bowl of milk to her father in the grasslands. But will she manage to get it there without spilling a single drop? Authentic setting drawn from the author's own experience, this is a wonderfully fun introduction for small children to a completely different culture.

Toddler son loved this one -- food, animals, minor tension, an 'uh-oh' moment, tears, reconciliation -- with gorgeous illustrations, and a welcome non-US/non-UK locale.
