Meredith Debens recommends Bookwitty, and excellent African books for children

I did some research - concerning shipping cost delivery of books to Africa - using various web pages last night. I first checked out Amazon and the postage would have been $150. I nearly died of fright!

I quickly closed that page and went to Bookwitty. POSTAGE FREE.

Quick response and by this morning some of the order already on the way [to Mother Givers Humanist School in Buhanga]! Total cost US$125.

There are more books I will buy , in particular the stories of Anansi the spider.
