Swahili Folklore

This book consists of nursery rhymes, songs and Swahili folk tales.

In Tanzania, oral lore is a common tradition of transmitting stories from one generation to another. The stories were written and submitted by school children from Manundu Primary School in my hometown Korogwe, Tanzania.
The nursery rhymes, songs and animal facts were inspired by memories from school time and also a wish to instil children with an appreciation for the wild animals, especially those belonging to the List of Threatened Animals.

For every child who wishes to explore their wild and fun side, just flick through the pages and get acquainted with the Swahili folklore and Tanzanian wildlife. Tanzania warmly welcomes you. ‘Karibu sana.’
