Poems and Rhymes for African Children

For over half a century in the Ghanaian educational system, poetry at the primary level has never been revised. The poems and rhymes that our parents recited whilst in school are the same poems we also recited (Fox Fox Fox, Mary Had A Little Lamb etc). Unfortunately most of these poems have no African settings and our children do not understand them.

Poems and Rhymes for African Children has been written to extol the virtues and values of the African and make children identify themselves with what they read. It covers almost every area in life such as culture, education, safety and sanitation.

The literary devices of rhyme and rhythm make it easier to sing some of these poems as songs. You and your child will have fun reading this book together!
