My First Hip Hop Book is a different, colorful picture book about culture and everyday life with fun and clear pictures for small children. A charming book with lots of humor and attitude.
You can point at events and objects related to hip hop culture, but that also occur pretty much everywhere in everyone’s life. The book takes place over a day and every page features everyday situations that children can relate to.
Ageing B-Boys and B-Girls will love teaching their children and grandchildren their first simple words with a hip hop twist. No one is too small for the four elements!
Previous books by Martin Ander include The Hip Hop Board Book, Subway Scrawl and Ouff! Mander Selected Works.
“This was one of the most diverse and culturally appropriate [children’s] books I’ve seen. All of the kids loved it. The pre-reader loved that he could memorize and “read” it, the older kids enjoyed the art, and Baby was happy to look at the pictures.
On every page with more than one person, there are always a variety of skin tones […] Everyone is happy and getting along. […]I wouldn’t have expected a 17-word book to attract any attention from the kids over 6, but it did! My pre-reader especially loved the final page with matching rhyme illustrations.”
