Synopsis

E is for Ethiopia by Ashenafi Gudeta, Ataklti Mulu, Betelhem Abate, Dama Boru

From Coffee to Nets, from Running to Xmas, this photographic alphabet celebrates everything Ethiopians love best about their country. Set in north-east Africa, Ethiopia has a long, rich history going back many thousands of years. It is inhabited by a variety of ethnic groups, with Christianity and Islam the main religions. Here are glimpses into Ethiopian houses, food, religion, clothes, hairstyles, animals, music - making the perfect introduction to a country still unfamiliar to many people. The text and photographs are by a group of young photographers in Ethiopia whose work is supported by the UK aid agency CAFOD, the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development.

Reviews

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

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
