This review is from: Moja Means One: Swahili Counting Book: Swahili Counting Book: Swahili Counting Book (Picture Puffin) (Paperback)
This is more like a poor quality political pamphlet from one of those 1970s American 'Black Power' organisations than an infant's introduction to counting. Dire introduction to 'the black children...' and pretty awful indoctrinating text throughout. The illustrations in the book are of rural East African life, and are superb - it's just a big pity that the authors did not match these with quality writing.
I'll pass this on, if I can, and design a Kiswahili counting & alphabet book myself; I'll not be able to match the art in this one but the text will be infinitely better!
