Fire on the Mountain
Challenged by his master to spend a bitter-cold night alone in the mountains, an Ethiopian boy bets his future that he will succeed. And he does, warmed only by the sight of a distant fire. When his master refuses to recognize the boy's victory, the boy and his sister decide to beat the rich man at his own game.

Review: Fire on the MountainUser Review - Al - Goodreads
I love the beautiful pictures in this book. The people, & the place, really do look straight out of Ethiopia. The Story is a simple one about a boy wanting to be with & care for his family. He is set up to fail, but he comes through in the end. Read full review

This is a wonderful, multicultural story, set in Ethiopia. I would use this story in the classroom as a read-aloud and a discussion on perseverance and courage. Read full review
