Summary
Fearing that his classmates will ridicule his playing the kalimba in the school talent show, Joshua uses a magical Masai mask to transform himself into different people he thinks are more interesting, before realizing that his own identity is one of value. By playing the kalimba, an African musical instrument, in his school's talent show, Joshua gains self-esteem. An ideal read-along tale of self-discovery and acceptance, set in a supportive Harlem family. When his family suggests he should play his kalimba, a traditional African musical instrument, in the school talent show, Joshua thinks that all his classmates will make fun of him. But Joshua learns that it's better to be true to yourself. Color illustrations throughout
