The Gabi that Girma wore / by Fasika Adefris and Sara Ackerman ; illustrated by Netsanet Tesfay.

Adefris, Fasika, (author.). Ackerman, Sara, (author.). Tesfay, Netsanet, (illustrator.).

Follows how a Gabi is made in Ethiopia from seed to harvest, to weaving to shop, to gift for Girma. "Written in the cadence of The House That Jack Built, this vibrant and lushly illustrated tale pays tribute to the Gabi-- a traditional Ethiopian cloth that is used to celebrate both community and culture. From the tiny seed to the fluffy white cotton, from the steady hands of the farmer to the swift fingers of the weaver, from the busy shopkeeper, to a gift for a loved one, follow the journey of the Gabi that Girma wore in this lively and rhythmic tale that's perfect to read aloud."--Amazon.
