I at JOM Charity, Glasgow, Tales by Moonlight & Stars African Storytelling section at Glasgow Academy, Milngavie. We read African Tale of Creation, from Ancient Yoruba Kingdom of Nigeria. Read some African Proverbs and Sayings. During question time the children got the answers right. What a bright lot. We ended the section with a jam session of African percussion instruments and my beloved talking drum, singing songs from Ancient Kingdom of Ishan & Benin, Edo State, Nigeria. The session reminded me of story time with my parents when I was growing up. I learnt a lot from it. The Children are Our Future. Let’s invest quality time with them
