Africa’s Sweet Connection

Africa’s Sweet Connection

Africa’s Sweet Connection is a children’s book, written by Alana Jolley, about an amazing bird, known as the Honey Guide. The bird helps people find honey, in exchange for some of the sweet bounty.

It is also about an ancient cultural pattern in Africa, which is becoming extinct due to modern-day conveniences such as grocery stores.  The Borana people in rural Africa can now obtain sweets, other than those found in nature.

They no longer rely on collecting wild honey for their festivals, a tradition thousands of years old.

Africa’s Sweet Connection is available in hard cover, or soft cover.  It is a picture book encouraging questions not only about nature and the bird called Honey Guide, but also about relationships between humans and animals.  Such relationships are interconnected, interdependent, and symbiotic cultural arrangements.
