Little Hands

@ Sunday Times Books LIVE

Welcome to the Blog for “Little Hands”

Little Books for Little HandsWelcome to the blog of the Little Hands Trust. The Trust is now supporting an initiative of the Stories Across Africa project, which together with New Africa Books has recently published sixteen beautifully illustrated books for 2 to 6 year old children.

We’re helping to raise funds to get this pan-African set of Little Hands books – which come packaged in a special box – to as many young children as possible. The books were conceptualised for sharing in as many countries and languages as possible, so that children come to learn about and enjoy what they have in common as young citizens of Africa.

Little Hands books are already available in the following languages: Afrikaans, English, French, Kiswahili and Xhosa.

They are being prepared in Arabic, Akuapem Twi, Cinyanja, Isindebele, Kimwane Kinyarwanda, Makonde, Makua, Mandingo, Portuguese, Sepedi, Setswana, Siswati, Sesotho, Tshivenda, Yao, Xitsonga, Zulu – and we hope soon in many others!

  • For more information on our project, please see our About page.

Meanwhile, please download a free copy of one of our books: just click the link in our sidebar, save the file (for Fruit Salad, one of our favourites) and start reading!
