Review

Their photographs are vibrant, rich in content and quality. Their choices of which aspects of Ethiopia to show give us a meaningful snapshot of their cultural heritage and current context. The text is well-written, accessible and clearly linked to the photographs. Books for Keeps

I got this book for some friends who are adopting from Ethiopia.

Very catchy- I think my boy will love it later in life, he is a bit too little now, but a great way to introduce his culture.

The pictures are bright and colorful and it's educational as well as interesting.

This book took a long time to arrive on my doorstep, but it was well worth the wait. My daughter was adopted from Ethiopia at the age of 6 and she is going to be so excited to have this book. We also own the book K is for Korea, and I can't say enough good things about this series. The photographs are beautiful and the information is just right for preschool-elementary grade school aged children. When you turn the last page, your only disappointment is that the English alphabet isn't longer so that you can keep on going!

This is a wonderful little book. It presents the alphabet in an easy format with brilliant pictures / photos to accompany each letter. The scenes are from traditional Ethiopian life and therefore very relevant.
The book arrived in excellent condition and in very good time.

My wife and I bought this book to teach our kids about Ethiopia and were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of this little book. There is some great Amharic vocabulary that you can easily start to pick up and you get a nice sample of the culture through the images and explanations.

My husband is Ethiopian, so for our kids I seek out books that can show them Ethiopia. I assumed this book would do a good job. However, the words they choose for the letters in the alphabet are down right horrible. For "O" they use "old!!" There are plenty of Amharic (national language of Ethiopia) words that start with the "o" sound they could have used. I could have made a MUCH better version of this book using all Amharic words to teach children not just about Ethiopia but about the language and culture too.

That said--the pictures they have are beautiful.
