It Takes a Village to Raise a Child in Mathadi: Lessons for Community Education, Part I, a new book by Kennedy Agyenkwah, has been released by RoseDog Books.

The inhabitants of the village Ma-tha-di are a proud and prosperous community until they abandon their ancient traditions, customs, and rituals. The social cohesion among the community begins to break down, and elders are no longer respected, the youth degenerate into a self-satisfying existence, and leaders become corrupt and abandon time-tested traditions and rite of passage.

One day a pregnant lioness goes hunting during a mature period in her pregnancy. She loses her own life in the pursuit, but her cub lives on and is taken in and raised by a neighboring village of sheep. Years pass in the Athma Village of the Sheep, which is rich in culture and tradition. One fateful day, the lost lion becomes the lions’ prey in a frightful hunting expedition. But the inhabitants of Ma-tha-di soon learn they have much to learn from the wise and cultured lion. Will he be able to save the inhabitants of Ma-tha-di before it is too late?
