Synopsis

Hic...Hic... Hiccups! Setswana version by Dianne Hofmeyr

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. The kits have been revised to meet the changing needs of learners, schools and new education policies. Many of the well-loved stories, posters and activities have been kept and exciting new stories have been added. The posters, activities and the Teacher's Guide have all been revised to provide fresh, new ideas to try out in the classroom. Hic ... hic ...hiccups! is a title in the Little Library Literacy Kit. Summary: Baby has hiccups. The family members try various ways of getting rid of the hiccups. Main concepts: family members, action words (verbs). Problem solving is also covered.
