He returns to his Maasai tribe and retells the story in the hopes that the elders will bless the cow he worked so hard to purchase for his mother but now decides to give to America.

The illustrations by Thomas Gonzalez are beautifully evocative. This is a true story, as an afterword by Wilson Kimeli Naiyomah explains. He describes how he went to America on a scholarship and was shown great kindness there. They show Kimeli in his Stanford windbreaker and running shoes, surrounded by villagers and, of course, innumerable cows. Over and over in the scenes, two spears or two sticks or even two giraffe necks appear in the background, a subtle echo of the twin towers. So when he wanted to do something after 9/11, he thought: To heal a sorrowing heart, give something that is dear to your own.

Touching only begins to describe this book. For the Maasai the cow is life. For these gentle people to make such a gesture and sacrifice-to offer 14 cows to the American people-shows the deep connection they feel for the grieving Americans and for the sacredness of life. It shows what one can do for a neighbor. This book can open up a wonderful discussion for children about peace.

I loved the sweeping colorful illustrations depicting the Maasai, especially the last portrait where we see the twin towers in the eye of the boy. A beautiful book, a beautiful story. May the gift of the Maasai continue to grow. - Biblio Reads Children's Book Review

The illustrations are amazing, and if you look at Dream of Wings and The House on Dirty Third Street, or Sonya Sotomayer, you will see how the art work dominates
