Simply written but, with gorgeous illustrations and content.
Handa's Grandma has one black hen called Mondi, one morning Mondi can't be found anywhere so Handa goes off to search for her, accompanied by her friend Akeyo.
Together the girls take a little counting journey (from 1-10) in amongst items and equipment from their village, as well as the native plants and habitats of smaller Kenyan wildlife, counting and describing each creature they encounter in their search for Mondi the hen.
Mondi is of course, eventually found... with a happy, surprise ending.
A gorgeous picture book by Eileen Brown, perfect for younger children, as a lovely introduction to a different country and environment and yet with a familiar theme.
Goes perfectly as a partner to the classic 'Handa's Surprise'.
It really encourages my daughter to practise her counting. We love reading it together.
