Book Review: Izilwanyana Zasefama - Farm Animals Author: Mosa Mkhize

Izilwanyana zasefama – Farm animals unpacks the world of farm animals presented in a bilingual format, namely in isiXhosa to English.

It is a great book to read to young ones to teach them different languages.

The picture will make it easier for kids to understand and you can translate from either to simplify the learning process.
