This beautifully illustrated book contains 48 rhymes that Mother Goose might have written had she visited Africa. The rhymes, which many children might recognize, contain different lyrics that teach about a few of the wonderful, colorful and diverse aspects of African life, both modern and traditional. I have used this book in my classes as a resource for rhymes and as a starting point from which to tell stories and learn about African culture.

This storybook with accompanying CD features 29 songs from 10 countries, recorded with indigenous instruments and performed by women, men and children.

Here, for instance, is the first verse of a long Swahili lullaby:.

  1. Many of the nursery rhymes listed on this page correspond to similar rhymes in the English Mother Goose tradition. My friend and correspondent, Marietjie.
