Read Tinga Tinga Tales online and help donate books for children in Africa

Puffin Books are big favourites in this house, and here’s a fantastic chance to give children in Africa the chance to enjoy brand new books too. Simply go online to wegivebooks and every time you read a fabulous Tinga Tinga Tales story with your kids, a book will be donated to the Tinga Tinga Tales Teacher Training Programme in Kenya and Tanzania. There are 20,000 books to be donated, and as many as 90 African children can benefit from the donation of just one book! Brilliant cause and as you can see, Lenny Henry, who provides the voice of Elephant and Buffalo in the Tinga Tinga Tales TV series , is already a fan.  ‘It’s great that children in Africa will also benefit from the success of these stories with actual books being donated to help improve their literacy skills,’ he says. Couldn’t have said it better myself. written by Liz Jarvis
