Suitable For Ages 6+. The Legend of the Bao-bab Tree is the story of a beautiful tree who complained to the Great Spirit of the Wild Plains about wanting to be the best and brightest and most handsome of all the African Trees.
The Great Spirit became tired of the complaints, and reached down from the sky, yanked the tree out of the ground and placed it back in the earth upside down! All the animals were alarmed, and so was the huge tree. For after that, the magnificent tree only grew leaves once a year. The other months, the roots seemed to bend and grow towards the sky.
A huge beautiful tree has been growing for years and offers shelter to a diverse range of African animals. In spite of this, however, the tree is incredibly proud and seeks attention and constant praise. Eventually the Great Spirit of the Wild Plains, fed up with the trees boasting and moaning, decides to teach it a lesson it won't forget...
“Powerful people cannot afford to educate the people that they oppress, because once you are truly educated, you will not ask for power. You will take it.”
