Unlikely Friends 1

“Our most important friends are sometimes those we least expected.” A quote from a beautiful children’s book, Owen & Mzee, is the essence of the enchanting story of a stranded hippo and a 130-year old Aldabra tortoise in Mombasa, Kenya on the eastern coast of Africa. This is a child-parent, read-together book. . . and be sure to read the book before visiting these excellent websites (picture album and about book, NPR interview, and YouTube video).
