This course introduces students to the cultures of African societies through a critical exploration of African children's literature. As students explore how storytellers and authors of African children's literature use literary skills to incorporate social and cultural values in texts, they gain literary understanding and acquire skills to create powerful literature for children. The study considers social and historical contexts, literary development and the cultural influences on children’s oral and written literature.
