" A wonderful folktale from Uganda that is really inspiring! This is a great one for a Kinder or 1st story time, and I see the kids chanting along with me on this one! " said.

" Who can help find water in the driest of land? " said.

" Great for a storytime with movement! " said.

" Great themes of persistence, perseverance and what is fair. " said.

" If you love to root for the little guy, you have to love African folktales. And if you love folktales, you have to love Margaret Read MacDonald. There's a big job to do, and all the big animals think they are the ones to get it done, but never count out a littled lizard with a big heart. " said.

" A folktale from Uganda from my favorite storyteller of stories around the world. I would love to use this story for a program with children in 2nd and 3rd grades. Teaches children that everyone has something to contribute even the most smallest. Brought a smile to my face. " said.

" What a fantastic (folklore) story about teamwork and sometimes the smallest of the group can not only contribute but resolve issues. Not to count anybody out. The illustrations were as excellent as the story. " said.

" This is classic Margaret Read MacDonald at her best. With opportunities for lively audience participation, a strong message about perseverance, and a funny cast of animals it is sure to please pre K - 4 audiences. It is written by a storyteller for story tellers, so if you are mom, dad, teacher, librarian or counselor, the text works well for a read aloud. The sources for this folk tale are well documented and the illustrations are thoughtful. " said.
