In her language, Lubukusu, her name means 'the good one.'
"Please orange tree, grow big and give us lots of ripe oranges."
"Please grass, grow greener and don't dry up."
"Please flowers, keep blooming so I can put you in my hair."
"Please tree, put out big branches so we can read under your shade."
"Please, grow strong and protect us from bad people."
"Are your oranges ripe yet?" Khalai asks the tree.
"I will see you tomorrow orange tree," says Khalai. "Perhaps then, you will have a ripe orange for me!"
