a special new book

Standard

Years of missionary moms have dreamt of a children’s library for Babwisi kids to receive daily access to quality literature.  They slowly accumulated books for their own children over the years and often shared these with the community on the front porch.  One of these moms, Jennifer Myhre, took sharing literature with her children to a whole new level.  She wrote them books.  Every year for Christmas, Jennifer would read aloud the newest tale she wrote for her four small children.  The tales weren’t just works of imagination, but relayed people and places they knew well.  Jennifer wrote about the people and places of Bundibugyo!

Books4Bundi has received the special gift of the first publishing of the Myrhe’s prized stories.  A Chameleon, a Boy, and a Quest is the first fictional book about Bundibugyo, and we own our very own copy!  Rachael, our dedicated librarian and an avid reader, has received the honor of being the first to read this moving story.

Did I mention the artwork is by a former Bundi missionary kid?!  This book is such a blessing!  If you’d like to learn more about it, check out this video, or buy yourself a copy here!  Thank you, Jennifer, for sharing A Chameleon, a Boy, and a Quest with the Books4Bundi library!

  1. Webale muno for the review. I am curious and eager to hear if local kids relate to the story. If you can get any reactions please share with me. Thanks for the pictures. And the library is a dream come true. The dream began with the little bit of money from our departing yard sale and Amy valiantly took the baton. So the book IN the library is a dream squared. Thanks!!!
