Moja Means One

By Muriel Feelings

Illustrated by Tom Feelings

Published by Dial Press, 1971

This black-and-white book shows the way to count to ten in Swahili.  After each number, the book also gives a tidbit of information about Africa.  The beautiful drawn illustrations illustrate the text and give additional information about life in Africa.

A great book to use in Geography when studying Africa in Grade 9.
