By his cunning and resourcefulness he finds a way to keep the spoils for himself and refused to share with his friends. This led to unfavorable consequences for him when his friends later found out.
“In a way, the book is an exciting, funny, fast paced story of events which led to a tragic result with a happy ending for some of the characters,” Vincent said. “However, embedded in the story are some of life’s fundamental lessons that children need and will learn from the adventure of the main characters.”
The Turtle’s Shell is the first title in Vincent’s first children’s storybook series Mama’s Tales of Kanji. It was inspired by stories he heard as a young child growing up.
Today, when the author is asked why he decided to write this story, his answer was simple: “I felt I had to share this wonderful African folklore tales with today’s children. The exciting stories I heard from my elders as a child growing up have played a huge role in inspiring and challenging me to be my best self. These stories were the first lessons I learned to look for the good in every person or situation. I am having a lot of fun sharing my stories with the children of the world starting with those in my local community.”
The Turtle’s Shell has very important life lessons which are also relevant today for young children to learn and one powerful way to teach young kids some of these lessons is through telling stories that stimulate their mind and thoughts. This story will make a difference in the life of a child today.
