About the author

Ata Agoro

Ata Agoro has three children under the age of five. Frustrated with the limited bilingual resources she could find in Yoruba and English to read to her children outside of Yorubaland, she rolled up her sleeves and embarked upon creating them.

Ata means "pepper," and she plans to spice things up beyond pepper soup! The avatar at the left not only spells out her first name but also reflects one of her favorite Yoruba songs about an orange tree, under which children are seated, playful and happy.

The T stands erect as a trunk and reaches toward the skies tall as a tree. However, the A at either side is for Apple, though, not Orange. A is also for All. Let's All enjoy All the fruits of our labors.

On the lookout to create even more Yoruba-English bilingual books for the early learner, Ata is embarrassed to share that she can only tolerate occasional spices in her foods and would rather her peppers be mild.
