The African Storybook (ASb) is a multilingual literacy initiative that works with educators and children to publish openly licensed picture storybooks for early reading in the languages of Africa. An initiative of Saide, the ASb has an interactive website that enables users to read, create, download, translate, and adapt storybooks. The initiative addresses the dire shortage of children’s storybooks in African languages, crucial for children’s literacy development.

As of May 2021 the website had over 1 900 original titles, with 222 languages of Africa represented in over 4 700 translations.
