I strongly recommend this book for children of all ages, and anyone interested in this refreshing look at Ethiopian life.

Seeing life through the eyes of a child like Tsion gives such a rich experience to the reader, far more than just a normal non-fiction book about a country.
My daughter loved this book. She was very interested in all the details of daily life in Ethiopia, and enjoyed trying to say the Amharic words on each page. Read morePublished 11 days ago by M. VanR
