In this story, we read about a chicken that is patiently and anxiously caring for her newly laid egg. Find out what happens after the chicken has cared for her egg for 21 days. Authors Caroline and Jane Kurtz worked with children from the Ethiopia Reads Gebeta Library in Addis Ababa worked together as a group to come up with ideas for a story that shows some of the truth behind this teret. A teret is a wise saying that people in Ethiopia use. Sometimes the meaning is clear. Sometimes the meaning has to be puzzled out and argued over. But the teret always helps people express truths and beliefs in an unusual way. This story was inspired by a teret widely used in Ethiopia. Ready Set Go Books, an Open Hearts Big Dreams Project, is focused on increasing the literacy rate in Ethiopia through giving readers books with stories in their heart languages, full of colorful illustrations with Ethiopian settings and details. Profits from books sales will be used to create, print, and distribute more Ready Set Go Books to kids in Ethiopia, Africas second most populous country. Ethiopias population is 44% children, ages 0-14 (43 million out of 97 million total). Only 5.5% of children attend pre-school or kindergarten, and the adult literacy rate is 49%.
