Henriette Barkow / Illus. Derek Brazell
Colourful, lively illustrations accompany this dual-language Swahili and English edition of That's My Mum.
Mia and Kai don't look like their mums. When Mia goes out with her mum, people assume that they are not related. If ever Mia, Kai and their parents go out for the day, total chaos ensues. One day Mia and Kai decide that enough is enough and they come up with a way to put a stop to the confusion.
Written in the first person, Mia relates her experience of being a child of mixed heritage. Find out how she and Kai overcome being judged by the colour of their skin.
That's My Mum Swahili / English is a high-quality bilingual picture book, suitable both for children who are learning and reading Swahili and English in parallel and those being introduced to Swahili or English as a second language.
The text in this story is not simplified in any way so would be best suited to parents and/or children who already have a reasonable grasp of the language.
