When it comes to education, no child should be left behind – regardless of their background, abilities or personality. That is the simple message that the African Union promote through the International Day of the African Child on 16th June every year.
So we've dug deep into our repertoire to pull out this African folk tale which demonstrates exactly why it's important to include everyone when making plans to solve a problem. One of the first stories we ever told (back in 2008!), this delightful story will get your children joining in with the daring rescue of Africa's best-loved trickster, Anansi.
How better to help your children understand the ideas behind this important day?
