Synopsis

Vusirala the Giant Xitsonga Version by Vuyokasi Matross, Cecelia 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.

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!

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 ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
