In Issue 26 of the Baba Indaba Children’s Stories, Baba Indaba narrates the Aesop’s fable of the Wolf and the Kid. A kid goat was frolicking and playing so much he did not hear the call to go home. The wolf sees the lone goat and sees a chance for dinner. Some quick thinking is required, but what happens? Look for the moral in the story.

It is believed that folklore and tales are believed to have originated in India and made their way overland along the Silk and Spice routes and through Central Asia before arriving in Europe. It is thought that Aesop collected his fables at the Western terminus of the Silk Route in Greece millennia ago.

This book also has a “Where in the World – Look it Up” section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story, on map. HINT – use Google maps.

Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children’s stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as “Father of Stories”.
