Kishikishi_blogImageSmNow the journey you went on in (Kishikishi The Bad Monster) sounds interesting. Can you tell us about it?
I like running around scaring kids, but really I’m not that bad. Many parents in the northern part of Namibia have used me in their bed time stories to scare their children to stay away from strangers and tech them important lessons in their life. There are many more stories about me; I can say I’m popular, and fun!

What was your favorite part of your adventure?
Singing, I love singing and I noticed that many children enjoy singing too. You will find that in most of the stories about Kishikishi, there are songs!

Did you learn any lessons on this journey?
It’s important to stay away from strangers, and you don’t need to muscles to save your community.

There are hundreds of stories about me and some with my family coming your way soon! Yambeka Children Media will publish more of these stories.

Well it was nice meeting you. Before you go is there anything you would like to share?
Storytelling greatly increases knowledge in children. The children will learn about good and bad, various places, practices in life, through stories. In summary, stories also allow children to know about their own cultural, and others.
