In a world where so many kids are feeling entitled and acting selfishly, it is important to teach kids that other people matter, too. Compassion is a good trait to have. It is time to go back to the values of cooperation and to foster in our kids the desire to improve, not only their personal lives, but the lives of others less fortunate. This is the lesson subtly taught in Bimbambu.

Bimbambu is a bird that understands the need of others. It is its nature to be compassionate and giving. When asked for help, he doesn’t hesitate in reaching out and giving all he has. Only later does he find that this leads to a wonderful reward. It is a timeless story about the blessings of giving from the heart.

The illustrations are organic, as the medium used to convey the story is the medium of ceramics along with photography and other multimedia graphics. In addition to this being a good story, it has compelling elements transmitted by the art, which is attractive and original.
