    I think this book is a great read! It shows life living on the African Savvanah. It is a great story as well as informative. It tells how they think money is worthless and how cows are everything. It sound like a fiction book, but its really a nonfiction book. I love fiction so this is perfect! hope you guys love it as much as i do
