Format: Paperback
Kapiti Plain is a beautifully illustrated African story/poem which adopts the repetitive structure of 'The House That Jack Built'. As a primary school teacher this book has been ideal when teaching performance poetry and can be the cause of great discussions on the ethics of hunting. The stunning illustrations, rhythm and tale are sure it capture the attention of children and adults alike.

Format: Paperback
You might not initially be drawn to this book as the illustrations aren't as good as many other multi-cultural books. However, it's a useful book for both home and school.

Written in a repetive, increasing style, the story builds and builds until finally the rain comes. Lots of opportunities for PSHE / geography / science.

I fell in love with this book when one of my children had it home from school. I've just ordered and received my own copy and re-read it. I love it, not just the rhytum of the story but the ending always puts a smile on my face!

This is a great book. The story builds with each repartition, like the old lady who swallowed the fly. With lovely pictures it is a great alternative setting and children in my class always enjoyed it.

We had great fun using this African folk tale to learn about drought in Africa. The story is in the form of poetry and the repetition throughout lends it vey well to music and drama. My year 2/3 class had great fun being an 'orchestra' and composed several pieces of music using both the normal musical instruments in school and those they created themselves from everyday objects. The result was a brilliant assembly enjoyed by all!
