Kuri's father has planted their yams without praying to the spirits. The Head Men insist that the yams must be planted in the right way, but Father declares, "God is mighty," and he continues to plant their garden in the name of Jesus Christ. Kuri can't help wondering whether the Head Men are right. Are the spirits punishing him and his family? If the yams don't grow, what will they eat? Does he dare to be like Father and trust only in God? The day comes at last when Kuri must decide. A missionary story based on true events. Ages 6-7.

Review 2 for A Question Of Yams
Date:March 28, 2008
We borrowed this book from the library for homeschool, but my son said that he wished we could have it at our house all the time, so I bought it for him as an Easter gift. It's a great introduction to foreign missions for children. It's written at about a 3rd grade reading level.
