Synopsis

A Long Way to Baba by Sue Hepker

This title forms part of the Little Library programme, which consists of a Literacy Kit, Numeracy Kit and Life Skills Kit. These were developed to respond to a need for high-quality, indigenous books for the younger members of our communities, and have been successfully used in schools for the last ten years. This title is found in the updated, OBE version of the Little Library Maths Kit, now called the Little Library Numeracy Kit. The Numeracy Kit keeps seven of the best stories, and introduces five new ones - all of them trialled in classrooms around the country. A long way to Baba tells the story of a family who set off on a journey that involves travelling on a donkey cart, in a taxi and on a train as they make their way to Johannesburg to see their Baba. Time and distance are the main Mathematics links on this story.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
