Seven Spools of Thread: A Kwanzaa Story Book Description

IN AN AFRICAN VILLAGE live seven brothers who make family life miserable with their constant fighting. When their father dies, he leaves an unusual will: by sundown the brothers must make gold out of seven spools of colored thread. If they fail, they will be left with no inheritance and turned out as beggars.

Using the Nguzo Saba, or "seven principles", of Kwanzaa, Angela Shelf Medearis has written an unforgettable story that demonstrates how family members can pull together, for their own good and the good of the entire community.

Magnificent and inspiring woodcuts by Daniel Minter bring joy to this Kwanzaa celebration.
