by Gebregeorgis Yohannes (Author), Bogale Belachew (Author). Grade 2-4-In this traditional tale, Mammo is so silly that on his first day of work he holds his pay in his hands and loses the coins when he trips. His mother tells him that he should put his wages in his pocket. The next day, he is paid with a bottle of milk by the cattle herder and he does as his mother said, pouring the liquid into his pocket.

Yohannes Gebregeorgis, an Ethiopian native, is the founder of Ethiopia Reads, a philanthropic organization committed to bringing literacy to the children of Ethiopia. In 2008, he was recognized as one of the Top 10 Heroes of the Year by CNN. In 2011 he was awarded Honorary Membership in the American Library Association.

Silly Mammo: An Ethiopian Tale is a wildly colorful and entertaining folktale retold by Gebregeorgis Yohannes and illustrated by Bogale Belachew that children of many different ages and backgrounds will enjoy. It is also a fundraising effort for a great cause. As the author explains on the back cover of the book, Silly Mammo (Kilu Mammo in Amharic) is a popular folktale in Ethiopia, yet like most folktales it contains themes familiar across many different cultures and time periods.

  • Silly Mammo, the first children's book published in the Ethiopian language, is a gem of a find. I recommend it for my multicultural education classes at the college level and, in fact, last year bought copies for the entire class. Teacher education students at the elementary level are always thrilled to find resources that titillate children's imagination, and this one does that. The story is preposterously funny, especially for young ones. The best part, as mentioned, in another review above, is that all proceeds go to benefit the Ethiopian Books for Children & Educational Foundation. I recommend Silly Mammo for its multicultural content, its presentation, and its altruistic endeavors.

  • It looks like this book is becoming a collector's item: rare and expensive. I bought it for a little boy who was born in the US and whose parents are Ethiopian. I think that they all appreciated having the story told in both languages. I saw the author on television and was inspired to buy his book.

  • This was a fun book to read. I loved that the author chose to write it in both languages. I teach at a school that has had a few Ethiopian children. We are expecting an influx of more this school year. This book makes me excited that I have something to share of their culture and compare to the American culture as well. It was difficult to choose between four and five stars because this is the first children's book I've seen about/from Ethiopia. I reserve the fifth star for simply superb books. Silly Mammo didn't quite get there for me.
