Storytime: 10 South African Stories for Children

This publication includes the story “The Elders at the Door”, a West African tale retold by Maryanne Bester, illustrated by Shayle Bester.

“The Elders at the Door” is a folktale in which three visitors (suspiciously like the Wise Men) introduce themselves as Blessing, Wisdom and Love. No actual mention of Christmas, but plenty to think about. Charming animal characters.
