The South African Alphabet

South Africa is home to such diverse cultures, I love that my children are being raised to know the unique animals, plants and people that are important to our country. I am sure parents in other countries also delight as their children learn about their local heritage, but there’s nothing quite so special as seeing your child follow a songololo and squeal “lolo” while wearing gumboots in the garden.

The South African Alphabet is a new title from Alex Latimer that allows you to teach your child the alphabet, but all using local words that South Africans will embrace. A is for aloe, B is for braai and C is for Currie Cup!

Each letter of the alphabet is depicted in both uppercase and lower case, and accompanied by a brightly coloured quirky illustration of the word which will help to teach your child their ABC’s. For most letters there are two words to highlight the letter in question.

If you’re looking for a fun book that embraces the beauty and fun which our country embodies then be sure to check out The South African Alphabet.

The South African Alphabet is available from book stores and online retailers for a recommended retail price of R80. It’s recommended for children aged six to nine years.

Thanks to Penguin Random House for making learning the alphabet as easy as A.B.C.
