The Lovereading4Kids comment
Selected by a distinguished independent panel of experts including our editorial expert, Julia Eccleshare, for Diverse Voices - 50 of the best Children's Books celebrating cultural diversity in the UK. When Songololo's grandmother, Gogo, plans a shopping trip to the big city, he has to help her cope with all the hustle and bustle. It's all worthwhile, because at the end of the day there is a wonderful surprise in store for him.
Not So Fast Songololo by Niki Daly
A touching tale of young and old, full of the colours and smells of an African township. Songololo goes into the city with Gogo to help her do the shopping. Gogo walks very slowly, but Songololo likes to take his time as well. Grandmother and grandson enjoy a leisurely stroll around the busy African city, ending with a special reward for Songololo, for helping Gogo so well.
Full of understated charm. The Ultimate First Book Guide
Niki Daly's expressive watercolours highlight all the points that his text merely hints at: from the elderly Gogo's smiling love for her grandson to the boy's touching care and concern for someone so much older than he is. This picture book is a simple story about a universally shared experience and has already become a classic in its own time. -- Julia Eccleshare 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up
