We All Went On Safari takes the reader on a count by number journey through the daily life of a Maasai child. From spying a lonely leopard at dawn's first light (1=moja) to watching ten elephants on a rocky hillside glen (10=kumi), the reader is painted a visual and numeric feast from which to learn Maasai culture, custom, and language. Each number, from 1 to 10, is accompanied by the Swahili name for the letter, along with the Swahili name of each of ten children, who play a major role in the story's unfolding.

Happy Reading!
