    I like Paul Geraghty's The Hunter but it depends on your focus/aim for the text
     
  4. Anansie the spider is a good one, a teaching assistant at work gave me a book called Stories from West Africa, it has some really good stories in it. There is also a book in the same series about stories from the Caribbean etc..other than that you could read
    Hot Hippo
    Too Much Talk
    Mimi and the carnival
    Amazing Grace
    all i can think of at the moment but there are loads!!!

    If you go on cbeebies and click on stories they catergorise them and there are some lovely ones from other cultures. My reception class loved the kicking bird story. If you have espresso at school on the IWB if you gointo KS1 and music their is a lovely musical story of Anancy and the spider which mine love.

    Also books like So much love, loads and loads of love, through the window, Handas hen, Jamillas cat are good and could be scanned to make a IWB story.
     
  6. Are you also looking for them to have patterned/predictable language? If so 'Bringing the rain to Kapiti Plain' is very much along the lines of T'he house that Jack built' and another one I found was called'Emeka's Gift: An African Counting Story' and is by Ifeoma Onyefulu. I have also heard of 'The Carribbean Counting Book' which includes Carribbean dialect.
