This Swahili Alphabet book not only teaches children different words in Swahili, which is the most widely- spoken language in Africa, but the soft black-and-white drawings are used to illustrate daily life in Africa. This is a beautiful work of art, as well as a fun cultural lesson for young children. With helpful pronunciation tips in the introduction, this is wonderful tribute to this fascinating language.
