Where to buy it


Your little mtoto will listen, laugh and learn as young Lily-Rose shares her wide-eyed first adventure with her mommy in Kenya. Life is not exactly as she knows it back home in Canada—in this new place, there are elephants on the road and goats as pets, mud houses and maize porridge, and no subways or even socks!—but there are still games, songs, baths, and most importantly, mamas who love their children.

About the authors

In her first book Roxanne Joyal, co-CEO of Me to We and founder of Me to We Artisans, gives babies, toddlers, first readers and their families a heart-warming special glimpse into a culture where “things are different here, but somehow quite the same."
