This book is one of the first Hausa books to be written in the North for people to read and enjoy. It was written by Alhaji Abubakar Imam in the year 1934, when he was a teacher in the Katsina Middle School. He was then twenty-two years of age.

It is the first book that he wrote, and it brought him to the notice of the Government. Since this book he has written nearly twenty others in Hausa, between the years 1934 and 1970, and nearly all the Hausa books now in use in primary schools are from his pen, or written jointly by him and another person.

If the Hausa language could talk, it would say, ` Alhaji Abubakar Imam, may God reward you, for you have made me something to be read and admired like any other language in the world.'

Imam of Zaria Government College

The publishers felt that it was worth while turning Ruwan Bagaja, along with three other well-known Hausa novels, into a graded English reading series so that a new generation of children both in upper primary and junior secondary classes could learn English through the medium of these well-known tales.

The words and structural patterns are controlled at each stage and present a graded progression towards a 2,000 word vocabulary and coverage of all fundamental tenses, verb-patterns, adverbial and adjectival sequences, and clause construction. The vocabulary and structural items covered by this series have been selected and graded to fit in with up-to-date English course-books used throughout the world. Ruwan Bagaja (Stage 4) is written within a vocabulary of 1,400 words, with structures restrictedto an appropriate level.

Words new to each stage are set at the foot of the page where they first appear. The intake of these words is controlled in such a way that not more than six new words appear for the first time on any cne page. Words that are beyond the reader-stage but are made essential by the topic of the text are kept to a minimum and listed under ` topic words' at the end of the book. The sentence and/or utterance progresses in length and complexity over the series.
