Two years ago, I was driving west of Addis Ababa towards Nakemte. I was struck my the amazingly beautiful scenery, and the fascinating rural culture of the Oromo people in that area. En route, I snapped picture after picture, and when I got home, created this book: Ethiopia ABCs.
Honestly, it is a gorgeous photobook! I will toot my own horn. But the best part of it is that I’ve written in snippets of rural Ethiopian culture that my children find fascinating, all in the context of learning ABCs. This book is a great tool for pre-K/K alphabet learning, but my kids have picked it up again in grade 2, exercising their own reading skills.
Please consider buying a copy for yourself and for your friends with children. It’s a great way to learn about Ethiopian cultural, beautiful enough to make a coffee table book, and I donate 100% of the profit to Vulnerable Children Society.
This gorgeous ABC photobook for children celebrates life in rural Ethiopia. All the pictures were taken on a trip west of Addis Ababa to Nakemte in April, 2012. Please support vulnerable children in Ethiopia and buy a book. 100% of net revenues from this book will be donated on behalf of the author, Arnica Rowan, to Vulnerable Children Society's administration fund. VCS is a Canadian registered charity (#810826917RR0001) working on behalf of orphaned and vulnerable children in Ethiopia.
