Thoko Vuka! Thoko Muka!


Thoko Vuka! Thoko Muka! is a fun and captivating 2 books (Ndebele and Shona) in 1 hard cover children’s book. This is the first in our series featuring Thoko, a brave, young Zimbabwean girl living in the diaspora with  her trusty sidekick toy, “Zou-Zou”, who is an elephant just like her family totem! We created the series to allow young children to learn about Zimbabwean culture in a fun, engaging and relatable way. Join Thoko and Zou-Zou as they go on fun and amazing adventures to learn about her culture and heritage.

This story is inspired by the popular Ndebele nursery rhyme, Thoko, Thoko Vuka! written by Joanna Sibanda (nee Moyo). Get to know Thoko and follow along as she rushes to get to school on time! This first edition includes both Ndebele and Shona versions in a single hard cover book, spanning 60 pages with beautiful illustrations by Walter Barna ( a self-taught illustrator from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe).

Thoko vuka! Thoko muka! was proudly and purposefully written, designed, and illustrated by africans.
