About this deal

by Atinuke (Author), 140630655X 9781406306552 Anna Hibiscus by Atinuke 978-1406306552 (Contributor), 1406349127 9781406349122 Love from Anna Hibiscus by Atinuke 978-1406349122 (Contributor), Anna Hibiscus! Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously. At the same time, the story “Auntie Comfort” defines the traditions of the family that are still in place. In the final book of this wonderfully charming illustrated series, Anna Hibiscus proves just how amazing she is. But that's not quite enough--and so all the big cousins come to help, and so on, and so forth, until the whole family is together again, and everyone is happy.

Whatever the case, Anna’s a sweet, thoroughly likable character and readers will find themselves longing for a life where there are always cousins to play with, and sweet mango trees in the backyard to climb for fun. These are very careful little stories, but they really reinforce the message of being grateful for what you already have. Nigerian storyteller Atinuke’s debut book for children and its sequels, with their charming (and abundant) gray-scale drawings by Lauren Tobia, are newly published in the US by Candlewick Press, joining other celebrated Atinuke stories in captivating young readers. Even if you answered yes to both (A) and (B), can you still guarantee me that the book is really well written with phenomenal illustrations? The chapters are each stand-alone stories rather than continuations of a longer, over-arching plot, although there are nods to events that have happened in previous chapters.It will allow children growing up in similar settings to identify with Anna, her joys and sorrows, and at the same time provide children from other parts of the world with a glimpse of what life for a girl in an urban African setting looks like. But before she goes, she must find suitable clothes to keep her warm in the cold winter weather, and say goodbye to the family she loves. At the same time, the story "Auntie Comfort" defines the traditions of the family that are still in place.

Supposedly the author was born in Nigeria, but then she should know that "Africa" is a continent, not a country.While Atinuke might be seeking to universalize her protagonist's experience, it often reads like a condescension to potential Western readers. Anna Hibiscus is a little girl who lives in a beautiful white compound surrounded by her extended family. It is hard to find books for third world kids and its especially hard to find excellent transitional readers.

Considerations or precautions for readers advisory (strong language, sex, death, religious overtones, violence, etc.One of the chickens has laid its eggs and eventually they hatch all except one, which Anna looks after. In terms of length of chapters and the book as a whole I would say this is an older chapter book suited for second graders (8 year olds).
