Oral Traditional Tales from the Democratic Republic of Congo

Sh 3,000,000.00

This book is both interesting and original. It uses a compilation of some Congolese Traditional Tales for teaching English by having recourse to modern teaching standards. These tales belong to the oral tradition: they have been transmitted from mouth to mouth. Parents or adults usually tell them to children in the evenings around a fire or under a starry blue sky.

These tales have been reduced to the rank of simple folklore for a long time. But, thanks to this book, they have come out of darkness, have come to light, have been given their real value and can be let known to a large audience.
This book shows that these tales are not told aimlessly; they have an educational objective in the sense that they inculcate in children’s minds values and principles which will permit them to get along well with the members of their communities and teach them to be cautious, shrewd and wise enough to cope successfully with life’s challenges.
