Synopsis

Vusirala the Giant Setswana Version by Vuyokasi Matross, Cecilia Ntliziywana, Nodumo Mabece, Phumeze Mtati

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. Vusirala the giant tells the story of a greedy giant called Vusirala who is always hungry. The villagers are all afraid of him until a young girl bravely and cleverly saves them. Concepts covered include growth, doubling, compounding of numbers, comparative sizes and opposites.
