Kamau's Finish


By Muthoni Muchemi


About Kamau's Finish

Based on a real life story, Kamau’s Finish explores the sorts of challenges faced by children that can build or break character. It is set in the town of Nakuru Kenya, but Muthoni Muchemi writes in a way that is appealing to children worldwide. As highlighted by the Points to Ponder at the end of the story, there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to emotions. Exploring our feelings increases our emotional intelligence. By promoting independent thought, Kamau’s finish encourages readers to relate the lessons in the story to their own lives. The story and the discussion points will allow for enjoyable and stimulating reading and conversation. It is a must-read and must-share story.

I wrote this to encourage my children not to give up easily because life is a journey not a destination. I’d also like to dedicate it to the other beautiful children in my life particularly Lenny, Rafiyay, Ciru Mariru and Okendo Bendo.
