The aim of this book is to try as much as possible to bring back the reading and understanding of Nandi language and to encourage the other tribes making up the Kalenjin nation to write books for their own tribes (tribes making up Kalenjin nation have variations in speaking and description hence there is no Kalenjin language). The book achieves this through its content as follows:
**It contains the photos of animals, birds and insects.
**It contains the name of the animal, bird or insect in both Nandi and English languages.
**It contains the explanation of the animal, bird or insect in Nandi language. The explanation is divided into three or sometimes four major areas; where the specimen is found and habitat, biometrics of the specimen, reproduction and finally the lifespan of the specimen.
