EMMA'S GIFT FROM AFRICA, Timothy W. Lyons and Robert T. Rhode ISBN 978-1-59672-110-4
With her seventh birthday coming up, Emma felt sad because her father was far away in Africa. He was the veterinarian at the zoo, and he was delivering a herd of goats to provide milk to the children of an African village. Emma was out of school for summer vacation, and she was bored. One day, Emma's mother called her to come open a package that her father had sent from Africa just for her. As Emma entered the living room, she saw a huge wooden box with holes in it. You will never guess what was inside the box or what a big impact it had on her life. Suddenly, the circle of her world expanded well beyond what she could ever have imagined.
