Jambo! This is Caleb. His warafiki call him Kidogo, which means little in the Swahili language. He is the smallest six year-old in Kamala village in Tanzania, East Africa. He lives with his three older sisters who try their best to watch over him, but it’s a full-time job.
Kidogo’s mischievous behavior brings disasters wherever he goes. Shagalabagala-means mixed up over the top mess! A normal daydream for Kidogo is flying over the lagoon, catching Bugabuga with Babu. Along with staying out of trouble with his sisters, it’s a far off wish for Kidogo.
Grace has more responsibilities than her other sisters because she is the oldest. Her outside kitchen sink makes a brilliant place to scour pots with handfuls of sand.
CRASH! “Kidogo, come back! And help clean up these dishes!” Shouted Grace.
When girls are not working in the kitchen or helping with younger siblings, they enjoy playing hopscotch. Kidogo tags along, hoping to impress his sisters and their friends.
Plop, Plop, Plop!“Kidogo, we are trying to play, give me back the rocks!” Said Faith.
