    Please include more sample pictures from the book. A lot of people are interested to buy.

    Is the book appropriate for children? What age is recommended?

    This book reminds of my grand mother. She was such a beautiful woman and proudly Oromo. She is the one who planted the true sense of Orommummaa deep inside my soul. Her love for me still warms up my heart. As a child I grew up listening to her folk tales. She was the wisest and the most strong woman I have ever known. She was one of a kind to me. May her soul rest in peace. I love you grandma (siddisee).

    Nothing compares with the wisdom of our Oromo ancestors and the means with which they transfer that wisdom from one generation to the next. May their souls rest in peace as well.

    I would love to buy that book for my future kids. They deserve to inherit their Oromo wisdom.
