A beautifully illustrated storybook with a beautifully told story! A young Tanzanian boy works in the market each Saturday to earn a little spending money. He dreams of buying a bicycle, and carefully saves his coins. Before he can save up enough money, his father buys a motorbike and offers to sell his bike to his young son for the money he has saved. Such a sweet story showing how families work together, love each other and have compassion for each other, and also a story of appreciating the small things, and being wise and thoughtful in how you spend your money.
