The Gift of the Sun: A Tale from South Africa by Dianne Stewart, Jude Daly

All Thulani wants is a simple life basking in the sun. Tired of milking the co, he exchanges it for a goat ... the goat for a sheep ... the sheep for three geese ... until all he has left is a pocketful of sunflower seeds!

But the sunflower seeds feed the hens, the hens lay more eggs than ever, and before long Thyulani is enjoying the gift of his newfound fortune.
