HASH(0x8c852a08) out of 5 stars Much more than just counting 18 Jan. 2004
By Ein Kunde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"One Child, One Seed: A South African Counting Book" is an excellent book for children age 4 - 8. It teaches counting, and tells the story of a South African child, her family, and their garden, and a seed that grows into a plant and yields a harvest of pumpkin that is made into . . . Isijingi. There are actually three texts in this book that can be read separately or together: the counting text; the story of the seed; and background about South African family life. The book is illustrated with a couple dozen color photographs, and also includes a map of Africa and South Africa. This book teaches more than counting, something just as valuable: a look at another people and their culture. Younger children will like the counting text, with its large font and big pictures, slightly older children will appreciate learning about South Africa, its people and food.
HASH(0x8c852a2c) out of 5 stars Good early childhood classroom book, cultural, and teaching children to count 21 Mar. 2011
By Assoc For Natural Psych - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of many early childhood books which teach children a good lesson, counting, but also teaches them about another culture. Good for pre-K and possible Kindergarten, because of its excellent cultural lessons. Children who learn about other cultures are more likely to be tolerant, less prone to antagonism to other countries and people from other countries, more broad-minded. Very fine book for children.
