Lesley University writes children's books for WEEMA!


Students in the Lesley University School of Education teamed up to write books for children in Ethiopia.

Four teams each wrote and illustrated an original story, focusing on aspects of daily life familiar to children in Ethiopia. The books centered around themes ranging from coffee and birds to Vervet monkeys and enset (a plant native to Ethiopia and referred to as false banana).

Books will be printed in local languages and distributed to kindergartens and primary schools in 2018!
