December Book of the Month

Our December Book of the Month – and last of 2019 – is . . .

African Animals ABC
African Animals ABC donated by Letterbox Library


This beautiful board book, perfect for little hands, takes the reader on an alphabetical journey to meet 26 African animals from Antbear to Zebra.

Brought to life with bright, bold illustrations of each animal and decorated with African patterns, this is a book that young readers will love to pore over.

Additionally, the rhyming text will make it a popular and engaging choice for reading aloud:

Antbear naps,
Bushbaby blinks,
Crocodile snaps,
Dassie drinks.

This captivating introduction to the alphabet and African animals will be hugely popular with all children but it will be especially loved by those in African countries to whom many of these animals will be familiar.

Copies will soon be on their way to Sierra Leone where they’ll be used by one of our partners to introduce young street children to the joy of reading.
