Emeka’s gift: An African Counting Story by Ifeoma Onyefulu
Published by Frances Lincoln, 1995

Emeka wants to take his granny a special present. On his way through the market he looks at all kinds of things – four new brooms, six beaded necklaces, eight water pots – and the nearer he gets to Granny’s house, the more there is to choose.

Finally, he gives her the best present of all. This unusual counting story, accompanied by Ifeoma Onyefulu’s stunning photographs, takes a warm-hearted look at African village life.
