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!₵13.00Quick View
Malusi is a herd boy who tends to his grandfather’s sheep and goats among the mountains of the Transkei. High above, eagles fly while on the ground below, beetles crawl, termites scurry and dust flies as Malusi plays games of stick-fighting with his friend. But there’s danger too…
Can Malusi save his lambs from the hungry baboon who’s stalking the flock?
And who is the old man in the shiny car who stops to chat, and encourages the herd boy in his dream of being President?
This beautiful picture book is about a boy who dares to dream of a big future. It is a story of empowerment, self-belief and leadership, and is inspired by the life of former president Nelson Mandela.₵15.00₵15.00Quick View
