Children’s literacy is greatly enhanced when they enjoy reading. African Storybooks are filled with diverse characters and content, which ignite children’s imagination leaving them wanting to read more. For some children, reading in their home language is a new experience. Here are some comments from our readers:
• “Wow! I have never been as happy as this. I only listen to oral Turkana stories from my grandmother. I have never read a storybook in Ng’aturkana. Please, give me one more to read.” (Kenyan child);
• “I am excited to read a storybook in my language. I thought one could only have these beautiful stories in English and in the major languages.” (Nigerian child);
• “I read this book every night for my baby sister and she loves it!” (South African child).
