International Literature

Anna Hibiscus

by Atinuke

Anna Hibiscus, written by Atinuke and illustrated by Lauren Tobia, is a charming story about a little girl who lives in a very happy and amazing home in Africa. Her family includes her mother, father, and baby twin brothers. Besides these, Anna has many other family members who live nearby. There is always somebody to laugh and play games. Anna loves to romp on the beach, play in the sand, and splash in the ocean with her cousins. She also enjoys all the wonderful parties with her aunties! Although little Anna is very happy with her life and all the good things in it, there is one item missing; lovely, fluffy, white, snow!

This book, first published in England, is an awesome story to introduce young readers to the continent of Africa, its climate and weather, and all the other fascinating facts about this part of the world. I liked everything about this book and can understand why the author has continued to write more titles in this popular children’s series. Atinuke is also the author of Hooray for Anna Hibiscus!
