About this deal

You can help bring the magic of Handa’s Surprise into your KYFS or KS1 classroom with Twink’s range of colourful and engaging support materials. Handa is part of the Luo tribe in South-West Kenya. One day, she decides to fill a basket with seven delicious fruits to bring to Akeyo, who lives in the neighbouring village.

This book is a wonderful book to read to your children. It features some beautiful and colourful illustrations to help bring the story to life. As she is walking to see Akeyo, she is so busy thinking which fruit Akeyo will like best, she doesn’t even realise some animals are stealing her fruit! She’s in for a bit of a surprise when she gets to the village! For your younger children, you could use these themed worksheets to help your children with their pencil control. You’ll find a vast collection of resources for you to use, including display items, word cards, activities, worksheets and more. You could make a delightful display wall in the classroom and use this bright display banner as the heading. You could then put up other display items or show off some of your children’s work.

As the animals sneak out of the bush to steal Handa’s fruits, you could ask your children to shout out what animal it is as a fun activity whilst reading. You could also ask your children to call out the different fruits and count them to help our children with their counting skills and fruit recognition too.

Your children can reinforce their understanding of the story by putting together these story sequencing cards. This would be great as an individual or group activity. Who is Eileen Browne? The Handa’s Surprise book also has lots of opportunities to start a discussion about different cultures and countries. You can discuss with your children how people live in Kenya and more about the people’s culture and traditions. Handa’s Surprise book resources
