Householder Books introduces Ayomide Rukayat Enakerakpo, with the announcement of her debut children’s book, “Ọmọ dáada ni mí,” a bilingual book for parents and children.

The Yoruba word “dáada” has a rich meaning that goes beyond its literal English translation of “good.” It encompasses virtues such as obedience, politeness, kindness, and faithfulness – qualities that parents model and teach their children.

This book follows a day in the life of a family like yours as they navigate the routines of their lives, and learn the beauty of goodness, time and season.

“Ọmọ dáada ni mí,” will add to the collection of bilingual books for African children across the world. We hope it will serve as a motivation and as a guide for more parents to invest in teaching their children their indigenous languages.
