    One thought on “Trouble

    1. Katie Spencer

      What an adventurous and curious little boy Tekleh was. But trouble always seemed to find him, not matter what he did to avoid it! He would ruin the coffee beans and accidently lose track of the family goats. One day, Tekleh’s father took a piece of olive wood and carefully hallowed out holes to make a gebeta board. He promised the family that Tehleh would not have any more trouble, and that this board would teach Tekleh responsibiliy. When Tekleh was on an adventure and saw that a group of tra [...]

      This is a very fun story about a young boy who leaves home for the day with one thing and through a series of events ends up trading, trading and trading for many other things. It's interesting to see the many different items he ends up with and how being open to trading, he is able to benefit. I read the bilingual version that is available in English and Amharic.

    3. Edna

      Clever story about a young boy who starts out with a gebeta board which his father is convinced will make him focus on his responsibilities but, he loses the board and is repaid with another item and continues to trade each acquired item for another item until he surprises even himself at the end of the day.

    4. Scooping it Up

      My children love this story. Tension builds as the young hero gets further and further away from what is going to be 'OK' but he manages to make it all work out in the end. My kids love the relief and think it's pretty funny how it all resolves.In English and Amharic, we look forward to sharing this with our daughters who speak Amharic.

    5. Melissa Mcavoy

      A humorous retelling of an Eritrean folktale. Trouble always found Tekleh, a young goatherder. His father makes him a board game, gebeta,(like mancala), that is supposed to keep him out of trouble. A series of mishaps, trades and fortuitous events lead up to a witty conclusion in which everyone, including the goats, is satisfied.

    6. Alice

      Boys get into trouble. This book is based on a folktale from Ethiopia. The pictures are good the story is interesting but I was actually more interested in the authors note. Been sort of a lack luster for books

    7. Little Miss and the Legomeister

      A lovely folktale set in Eritrea, which is adjacent to Ethiopia. It's an amusing story with colorful, distinctive illustrations, and I love how it shares bits of culture in a natural and interesting way without being heavy handed or forceful.Little Miss "Loved it, and loved it, and loved it."

    8. Dolly

      This is a wonderful folk tale about a little boy and his gebeta board (what I know as mancala.) It is set in Eritrea and is a fun story, but still passes along a bit of the culture, traditions, and heartache of the country. Our girls really enjoyed this story (and so did I.)

    9. LeAnne

      A retelling of a traditional Eriktrean tale in which a young goatherd disobeys his father by trading away the board game that was supposed to keep him out of trouble. Colorful, primative illustrations.

    10. Rachel

      Summary from CIP: A retelling of a traditional Eritrean tale in which a young goatherd disobeys his father by trading away the board game that was supposed to keep him out of trouble.
