Once upon a time series is a collection of interesting folktales from different parts of Eastern Africa.
The stories in the series, which are part of Fountain Step-by Step reading programme, will help improve children's reading and comprehension skills in the English language as they read for pleasure.
These folktales do not only entertain but also teach some of the important moral and social values from traditional wisdom that children need to become better members of the community.
The books are beautifully illustrated in colour to make them attractive to children both in rural and urban schools.
The number on the cover is intended to guide teachers on the target year or class although schools in the rural areas may opt for a grade lower than the indicated one.
