Scary Footsteps Setswana Version by Lindi Mahlangu, Lungi Maseko, Joan Rankin

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. In Scary Footsteps, Lindi's papa warns her not to take the path into the forest because a scary monster lives their. Lindi and her animal friends find out. This story deals with size and growth and compounding of numbers. It also reinforces counting, encourages sequencing and promotes figure ground perception.
