Experiencing the reality of a dream is fulfilling beyond words. You look back at the journey from start to finish, and all that matters is that you never gave up. In celebration of World Book Day, 2017, I present to you, one of my dreams come true – Folktales are Forever
Folktales are Forever is a timeless collection of culturally enriching Nigerian folktales, skillfully retold to appeal to a global audience of children and adults. I was inspired by my children to write this book during my career change from contracts & procurement to Stay-At-Home-Mum when our family relocated temporarily to the U.S. in 2010. With vibrant illustrations, folk songs in local dialects translated to English and their music scores provided, reading or being read to, children and adults will find Folktales are Forever to be an absolute delight. Adults will have the invaluable opportunity to take children down the memory lane of their childhood story time, while children will be intrigued by the combination of entertainment and life lessons each story presents.
My experience telling the stories from my manuscript to the wonderful children in our U.S. school, who kept asking for more, was confirmation that indeed, our folktales are without borders.
Folktales are Forever therefore serves as a resource material that preserves a vital part of African heritage that has been passed orally from generation to generation and shares it with the world.
Folktales are Forever (Volume 1) is available in Paperback & Kindle Edition on:
