Depicts a warm, loving, multigenerational family; commonality of cultures, values and responsibilities; urban life in modern Africa. Anna Hibiscus is happy to be home after visiting her grandmother in Canada. Double and Trouble learned to run while she was away, and Grandad seems to have gotten older, but it?s just life going on as it should ... She has a pet chick called Snow White, and then there?s a surprise visit from a faraway friend. Featuring warm, loving multi-generational family relationships, Welcome Home, Anna Hibiscus! showcases daily life in modern, urban Africa. Great as a classroom or family read-aloud, it illustrates the commonality of cultures and experiences and inspires discussion.
"Tobia's expressive pencil drawings provide additional context and break up the text. More Anna Hibiscus stories are certainly most welcome!" -- Kirkus Reviews
