By Kelly Cunnane, Illustrated by Jude Daly (Schwartz & Wade Books – 2011)            Chirchir, a little girl, and her family are members of the Kalenjin tribe, who live in the western highland of the Great Rift Valley in Kenya. Chirchir just wants to help her family, but she drops Mama’s water bucket, spills Kogo’s tea, and sends Baba’s potatoes tumbling down the hill. Finally she finds her best way of contributing to her family.
