We All Went on Safari by Laurie Krebs

We All Went On Safari

The lively, rhyming text is accompanied by an illustrated guide to counting in Swahili, a map, notes about each of the animals, and interesting facts about Tanzania and the Maasai people. It would also be a great book for reading out loud to younger children due to the beautiful illustrations on each page and its counting theme that little ones can be actively engaged with. Great illustrations and a nice counting book where each page a different animal from Tanzania is counted in Swahili and English.

My favorite art site, Deep Space Sparkle, also has a great art lesson connected to this book. Kids learn how to count from 1-10 and to pronounce the numbers in Swahili. This book is also ideal for older children as at the end of the book, there are information about each animal and how the animal is said in Swahili.

Children's Book Review: We All Went on Safari: A Counting Journey Through Tanzania by Laurie Krebs, Author, Julia Cairns, Illustrator Barefoot Books $16.99 (29p) ISBN 978

We All Went On Safari

That tells about the people in Tanzania, some geography of the country, some culture of the people, and oh yes, how to count to ten in Swahili. It is very descriptive and uses rhyming. Have something to share about this book or any other African books? Why I chose this book: It's a book we've checked out of the library multiple times. I like that at the end it also includes a pronunciation guide, the Swahili names Moja. Students use a dry erase marker. The back matter contains very important, useful references about Tanzania and the Swahili language, including descriptions of its animals, the Maasai people, Swahili names and their meanings, as well as country facts and a map. Here is also a 'YouTube' clip that illustrates real life pictures of the animals in Tanzania.

On , she shares what she does on author visits. I had no idea I was doing it, but I was holding them back. A group of Maasai children and a Maasai warrior go on an adventure through the grasslands and discover lots of animals in their habitat who they count along the way. The reason I would not give it 5 is due to the animals overlapping in the pictures, which makes counting hard for those who are just starting out learning this skill. I integrated math into this activity as well to see if the students have one to one correspondence. Beautiful and colorful illustrations are painted in bright primary colors with children walking along 'on safari' as they observe the animals on the journey.
