Welcome to Moyenda's Village!

I am so excited about Moyenda and The Golden Heart. I think you will be, too.



A young boy goes off on a quest to find a treasure he can bring back to the people he loves. And maybe, just maybe, this journey set in a mythical country in long ago Africa sets the stage for the Kwanzaa holiday created by Maulana Karenga in the 1960s.


Moyenda . . . started as a Read-To-Me book for ages 3-8 but it’s also for anyone of any age who loves a good story and beautiful illustrations. Go to the Shop window and you’ll see examples of the exciting images. I hope you’ll order a book or two while you’re there.


ACTION!

I love folklore. Especially African and African-American tales. One of my favorites is “The Peculiar Such Thing” in The People Could Fly collection by Virginia Hamilton.

Do you have a favorite tale? Please share.

No worries, Arty. You do get a complementary copy. BTW, sounds like you haven’t seen the updates I’ve been posting on gofundme.com/moyenda. Lots of notes and news there. And as an appreciated supporter you should be getting an email from the site, too.

Thank you! I start shipping books this weekend. I’m so excited to get them into everyone’s hands. I’d love to know what you think about the book once you’ve had a chance to share it with your Littler People. 😌
