Author and illustrator Liz Mills presents her second collection of over 50 nursery rhymes and verse from popular childrens songs, specially reworked and adapted to appeal to children living in Africa. This delightful book frollows on the overwhelming and continuing popularity of African Nursery Rhymes, which has been reprinted almost every year since it appeared in 2006. Nursery Rhymes and Verse from Africa is a must for a young child’s bookshelf as nursery rhymes form an essential part of children’s development, teaching them rhythm and rhyme and word skills, as well as improving memory. Liz’s colourful and often humorous illustrations and word images will capture the imagination and make reading an activity that children (and parents/carers) look forward to, whether at bed time, or any other time of the day. They will also want to return to these rhymes, with images that they can relate to, over and over again.
