The story, The Man, The Boy and The Donkey, by Aesop is retold in Somali language. A man and his son were once going with their donkey to market. As they were walking, they met several people and took every piece of criticism while they were trying to please everyone. The original story is slightly modified but the moral of the story remains the same: “Try to please all, and you will please none.” The book is designed to encourage readers on Somali vocabulary learning and to relate new words to their prior knowledge and experience. This well illustrated book will delight early readers and older learners alike.
