Sleep Well, Siba and Saba
Nansubuga Nagadya Isdahl
Illustrated by Sandra van Doorn
“An endearing and edifying children’s story about treasures that you cannot lose. The memory of this lovable book will outlive your childhood.”Mamabuys
Siba and Saba are two sisters in Uganda who keep losing their things and who find their lost things in dreams. But their fortunes take a turn for the better when a dream reveals things they never lost. It is refreshing to read this story with an international flavour weaving in places in Uganda and words in the Ugandan language, Luganda. Isdahl effectively communicates a profound topic by captivating the reader with a story which is simple, yet thought provoking. Enchanting and dreamy illustrations of Sandra van Doorn greatly enhance the beauty of the book. A school uniform symbolizing education is highlighted in the story and offers an opportunity to talk to children about the value of investing in possessions that you cannot lose.
