Zufan and the Flower is based on a true story. Told in four languages – Amharic, English, French and Spanish – it is the first volume in a series about the adventures of Zufan. Intended for children ages four through ten years old, this story of universal appeal is formatted for families to share with their young children. The book teaches lessons of family love and that running from trouble only makes it worse. The presentation of this book helps teach children about different languages and cultures, and allows parents to read the story in new languages. Hardback with heavyweight pages and full color traditional Ethiopian illustrations, Zufan and the Flower is sized so that a preschool child can easily handle it while sitting on a parent’s lap.
