African Storybook Initiative Newsflash! Ethiopian Stories

We're proudly announcing a brand new crop of storybooks in two Ethiopian languages - Amharic and Afaan Oromo. This newsflash features just eight of these new titles, so watch the website as we publish more Ethiopian folktales over the next few months.

In addition to the new stories, we also have ASb-approved translations in Amharic and Afaan Oromo of storybooks from other countries.

African Storybook thanks Mezemir Girma (Amharic) and Mulualem Daba (Afaan Oromo) in particular for their contributions to African Storybook quality assurance.
