Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock

In the story Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock, by Eric A Kimmel explains how Anansi plays tricks on the animals. Anansi took all the animals in the forest to the moss covered rock, so that they could get their food. Anansi went to the moss covered rock and noticed that every time she said “isn’t this a strange moss covered rock” and she’d get knocked out for an hour… Want to know more? Grab the book and take a look.

We enjoyed this book because Anansi learned her lesson even though the little bush deer knew about Anansi’s prank. Also at the end of the book all the animals got their food back.

We’d like to recommend this book so that kids could learn and understand why it isn’t nice to prank anyone. As well as people may want to learn about moss covered rocks.
