Baby Monde's present is a pushchair - but her brother makes it go to wroom like a racing car. There isn't much relaxation until patient Grandmother takes over and they go for a nice long slow walk. Bright, lively pictures give extra vigour to the simple adventures. Don't miss the playful cat and the scruffy dog! This story was “written” by Marjorie’s daughter when she was six years old

Format (soft cover): Picturebook; 32 pages Readership: Read aloud & Young Readers

From Biblionef Annual Report for 2005 - Publishing Monde’s Present with the support of NAC: The National Arts Council (NAC) funded the publication of 5,000 copies of the children’s book Monde’s Present, in five South African languages (Sesotho, SiSwati, Xitsonga, Tshivenda and Sepedi) because so few quality books for young children are available in these minority languages.
