Babl Children's Books in French and English

Fatuma is excited to go to the market with Mama because she gets to pick out a new kanga cloth! Along the way, she asks Mama what makes her chai the best that Fatuma has tasted. Various vendors on the road offer their suggestions, but Fatuma can’t see how their offerings make chai so good. When they get to the kanga shop, Fatuma finds a kanga in the perfect color, and the words on it say, “Don't be fooled by the color. The good flavor of chai comes from the sugar.” With Mama’s wise guidance, Fatuma learns that it’s what’s on the inside that counts, rather than outward appearances. Join Fatuma and Mama to learn about a new culture, what makes chai special, and that the value of people lies within, all while learning a new language!

Reviews

“Parents will welcome the message that the value of people lies on the inside where we cannot see. In addition, parents seeking to teach their children the lessons of acceptance of other people's beliefs and culture will find the story an excellent aid.” - Amazon Customer

“A refreshing and relevant take on the ""you can't judge a book by its cover"" fable, this story tells of a young girl's coming-of-age discovery that what really matters is inside of her.” - Amazon Customer
