The Fanti “All About Me” books are part of a series of Ghanaian language books developed as literacy tools to be used by special education teachers in unit schools throughout Ghana. With these books, children can improve their vocabulary, literacy, and phonological awareness skills in both English and their native Ghanaian language. Books are available in English, Ga, Asante Twi, Akuapem Twi, Fanti, and Ewe. You may download PDFs of each of the four Fanti “All About Me” books by clicking on the links below.
