We All Went on Safari

Created by

Join Arusha, Mosi, Tumpe and their Maasai friends as they set out on a counting journey through the grasslands of Tanzania. Along the way, the children encounter all sorts of animals including elephants, lions and monkeys, while counting from one to ten in both English and Swahili. This lively counting book tells a story along the way, and would be ideal for reading and counting aloud. The book also includes an illustrated counting guide, a map, notes about each of the animals and facts about Tanzania and the Maasai people.
