African nursery rhyme

African nursery rhyme

Have you ever sang the head and shoulders song in a different language?  Well, let me teach you the Setswana version...  Tlhogo, magetla, nko le molomo, sehuba, letheka, mangole le menwana...  (Head, shoulders, nose and mouth, chest, hips, knees and toes) There you go, now to practice the pronounciations... 


Diverse languages

Diverse languages

When groups of people/languages/stories are omitted from books, we are taught that these people/languages/stories don't exist and aren't as important as those that are displayed. Losika Writes aims to change this, one book at a time. Everyone's story and language deserves to be heard Everyone should be able to find themselves in a book So spend that time reading with them and to them... Buckle up for the ride through all the universe and the many stories that lie within the pages of a book. Happy reading with @losikawrites

Growing up as a person of colour in Australia has inherent challenges. As we celebrate Harmony day, I reflect on one of the challenges parents of African- Australian children might experience.

Open the door, it may lead you to someplace you never expected.... As a medical mum 👩🏽‍⚕️ who has a vision to have all kids living in the diaspora proudly fluent in their native tongues, I have had to knock on a few 🚪s to share my dream and try to make it reality. Sure, some haven't opened YET, I am still patiently waiting 😉, excuse the medical pun 😜😊. Some doors have been opened only to be closed shut in my face 😩because- who cares for those languages? Err me 😉- there is no market for those books as those people don't read kids books in...
