On the seventh day of Kwanzaa, Lisha woke up and ran into Grandmother's room.
"What did you make me for Kwanzaa?" she asked.
Grandma rubbed her eyes, peeked at Lisha and then pulled the covers over her head.
"Grandma, it's morning. Time to get up and give me my present!" said Lisha.
"Harambee," said Grandma, peeking out from the covers again.
"What's a harambee?" asked Lisha. During Kwanzaa, Grandmother used Swahili words to teach important lessons.
