Overview

Under the Baobab Tree by Julie Stiegemeyer, E.B. Lewis

Moyo and Japera travel down the red dusty road to the next village. There, they will gather under the baobab tree, the Tree of Life. Moyo knows that some days the market wagon stops under the baobab tree. Villagers buy brightly colored cloth and heavy pots and pans. But who will gather today under the baobab tree? Come to a special place—a wondrous gathering place known as the baobab tree, the Tree of Life. Moyo and Japera know that almost anything can happen here. But today? Today the most important and truest stories of all will be told. People will come to hear, to pray, and to sing. And as the children journey to the tree they have only one question: Who will gather under the boabab tree? …Will you?

Chapter One

When the sun turns the morning sky to golden honey, a new day dawns, and Moyo steps from his straw-bound hut and begins his journey.

"Hurry, Japera," he calls to his sister. "Time to go!"

Moyo and Japera travel down the red, dusty road to the next village. There, they will gather under the baobab tree, the tree of life.

Moyo knows that some days the market wagon stops under the baobab tree. Villagers buy brightly colored cloth and heavy pots and pans.

But who will gather today under the baobab tree?

As the sun creeps above the horizon, Moyo gives thanks for the day as he watches clouds skim above the blue hills, hidden in shadow.

A weaverbird glances at Moyo and Japera as they pass by. Then the bird returns to building its basket-nest in the arms of an acacia tree.

Sometimes the elders gather under the baobab for long talks about the village and its people.

But who will gather today under the baobab tree?
