Cette histoire vraie, touchante et superbement illustrée raconte la vie d'un jeune garçon kenyan nommé Baraka atteint d'une incapacité physique. Baraka habite avec sa grand-mère et ses huit cousins dans un petit village pauvre. Sa grand-mère s'occupe d'eux et les aime tendrement, mais il n'y a jamais assez d'argent pour bien les nourrir et les vêtir. Baraka est très jeune et sa grand-mère est fatiguée et trop âgée pour prendre soin de lui. C'est avec tristesse qu'elle décide de le confier à un orphelinat. Cette histoire met en lumière l'immense coeur et le bel esprit de Baraka. La relation attendrissante entre grand-mère et petit-fils ne manquera pas d'émouvoir tous les lecteurs.

 Based on the life of a real boy, this warm-hearted, beautifully illustrated book tells the story of Baraka, a young Kenyan boy with a physical disability. Baraka and eight cousins live with their grandmother. She gives them boundless love, but there is never enough money or food, and life is hard - love doesn't feed hungry stomachs or clothe growing bodies, or school keen minds. Baraka is too young, and, with his disability, needs too much, and she is too old. A difficult choice must be made, and grandmother and grandchild set off on a journey to see if there is a place at the orphanage for Baraka. The story begins by looking at Baraka's physical disability as a misfortune, but ends by looking beyond the disability, to his great heart and spirit, and the blessings he brings.
