This book is a must read for people of all ages. I am 33 years old & was touched by this true story. I gifted a copy to my sister who is a social worker & a child I mentor.

In December 2009, I had the privilege of accompanying Dr. Bonyo on his annual medical missions trip to lovely village of Masara, Kenya. One evening after dinner, Dr. Bonyo shared his story with the group. I was very pleased to hear that the next summer his story was going to be published as a children's book because I did not want to forget any of it. The illustrations in the book were beautfully done and the storytelling really makes you feel like you are part of the adventure. This book makes me smile even when I just look at it sitting on my shelf and will always serve as a great reminder of the time I spent in Kenya with such a warm and generous man, Dr. Bonyo Bonyo.

After meeting Dr. Bonyo, I was extremely interested in reading this book. I read a friend's copy and loved it so much, I wanted to share it with my grandchildren. I was inspired by the book and by the kindness and modesty of the man the boy in the book became.

Great book! I had the pleasure of having Dr. Bonyo as a preceptor and hearing this story from him. While reading it, I could hear his voice! Not only does this book teach children to chase their dreams, hopefully it will teach them to give back to society. I bought this book for my niece and nephew, but may be a little too young to fully appreciate it at ages 4 and 5.

"The man said, ‘That is where I teach. If your parents will let you, you can come to my school. It will cost you nothing.’ He told me how I could get there in two days walking."

Bonyo Bonyo tells his story about growing up in Western Kenya in a small village in poverty. Like many kids he love playing soccer, but they just had a ball made of cloth stuffed with whatever they could find.

His grandmother used to tell the kids ghost stories, and Bonyo said he thought she probably wanted to frighten the kids so they'd be too scared to sneak outside at night and she could sleep without worrying about them.

[My Goodreads review includes an illustration of Grandma terrifying the children with ghost stories!]

When Bonyo was a boy he decided he wanted to be a doctor, because his baby sister had died and nobody could help. He loved school but the family couldn't afford it, until he met a man who said he could go to the school where he was the principal.

Great! It's only a two-day walk to get there! WHAT? Two days???

[My Goodreads review includes an illustration of Bonyo carrying his few worldly goods to walk two days across country to school.]

Long story short, he got there safely, he eventually was able to go to the United States to medical school, and came home to open a clinic named for his beloved mother.

My Goodreads review includes an illustration of Doctor Bonyo visiting his new clinic in Kenya.]

This is a wonderful biography for children to learn what it is to crave an education and what it is to have to "walk to school". This is longer and more detailed than other children's picture books, and there's quite a bit of writing. The illustrations are so bright that even little children will begin to enjoy hearing the story even before they're able to understand it all.

Thanks to NetGalley and Vanitabooks for the preview copy from which I've pinched a few pictures. It's another good one to add to classrooms and school libraries to help children learn about the world.
