Uncle Jallah Will Fix It

by: Augustus Y. Voahn, Hallie A. Ndorley,

This story teaches a young girl that life has its limitations and nothing last forever. No matter how well you take care of your things, beware, there will come a time for that thing to be no more. When that happens, let go and move on with life. Korto is sad that she has out-grown her favorite blanket Uncle Jallah made her when she was a baby. So Uncle Jallah made her a dress out of the blanket. Then one day Mother said to her, “Korto, look at your dress. It is crumpled and rumpled. It is even getting small for you. It won’t fit you neatly again. It is time to throw it away.” “No, Mama,” said Korto. “Uncle Jallah will fix it.”
