Read All About Ama as she points to and names different parts of her body.
Illustrated with colour photos, this short, simple concept book, though developed by Kathy Knowles for an African readership, should also have a North American market as nothing in the photos, including the background, situates the book geographically. The concept with which the book deals is that of the body’s principal parts, including the number of each. The book’s narrator, Ama, who is a very cute little girl, begins at her head and simply works her way down to her two feet, before pointing out, almost as an afterthought, “I have LOTS of hair.”
All About Ama, with its tight, brief text, is a fine book for parents to use with their youngsters as they learn the names of body parts. Just 18 cm high by 16 cm wide, the book is also the perfect size for young hands to hold.
An excellent home purchase for toddlers, All About Ama deserves a place in all libraries serving preschoolers.₵22.00₵22.00Quick View

Ama made wise choices and decisions in life which made her very happy. The choice of helping and obeying her parents was dear to her heart. She always chose good friends who helped her in school and also gave her good advice for her to good things in life.
Young as she was, Ama always wanted beggars and needy people to enjoy part of the food she ate. Her love for the needy made her give her coin and some slices of bread and cake to the beggars.
Ama felt guilty whenever she chose to do something bad. This prompted her to put all plastics, water sachets and other rubbish in a dustbin and not to throw them into the gutters.₵12.00₵12.00Quick View
