Africa Amazing Africa..Country by Country

OVERALL WINNER OF THE 2020 SLA AWARDS “A gorgeous walkthrough of all Africa’s countries, celebrating the history, languages and culture of the continent.” Guardian “This beautifully produced atlas of Africa is a fantastic book for any home library or classroom.” BookTrust, the UK’s largest reading charity This book is British-Nigerian storyteller Atinuke’s love letter to Africa: a carefully curated sample of the continent’s 55 countries, in all their amazing diversity. Her beautifully-written, lively text reflects Africa’s unique mix of the modern and the traditional, as she explores its geography, its peoples, its animals and its fascinating history. The book divides Africa into five sections: South, East, West, Central and North, each with its own introduction. This is followed by a page per country, containing a delightful mix of friendly, informative text and colourful illustrations. With just a a couple of facts per page, the book is perfectly geared toward seven year old readers, and imagined as a diving-off point: to inspire children to find out more about each and every country… So, welcome to Africa, Amazing Africa: the richest king, the tallest sand dunes and the biggest waterfall on the planet are all here, alongside drummers, cocoa growers, inventors, balancing stones, salt lakes, high-tech cities and nomads who use GPS!

  1. Margy, Hope you and your family are well! Trying to reach you. Been a while! Retired but teaching ESL part time at North Shore Community College in Lynn MA. I have been using Who Belongs Here for 6 semesters! I have at least one Cambodian student in each class. The students range from 19 to over 50! Everyone is engaged and most willing to the their stories. The Journey Map is a HIT with almost everyone. I have had some budding artists! I have used this book from 4th grade to college. Just wanted you to know. I told my class today how I met you. They said, “you know the author? WOW! “
