Bouba and Zaza
The Bouba and Zaza series “Childhood Cultures", an intergenerational African series of children's books, freely examines serious subjects. Its stories are set in contemporary African society and portray early childhood and its problems. The publishers have adopted an educational approach, using fiction to examine the questions children may ask themselves and the answers they need.
The concept of “Bouba and Zaza" was developed by ADEA's Working Group on Early Childhood Development and UNESCO's Regional Office in Dakar, in collaboration with education specialists in Africa from ADEA (Association for the Development of Education in Africa) and UNESCO, the Publisher Michel Lafon Education and African illustrators.
