Depicts a warm, loving, multigenerational family; commonality of cultures, values and responsibilities. Anna Hibiscus has made friends in the village ? the local children share their games, and Anna shares what she?s learning in school. Even her big girl cousins help teach. And then there?s Sunny Belafonte, who is all alone, and who she ? and grandfather ? are determined to help. There?s so much to do ? can they really make a difference? Featuring warm, loving multi-generational family relationships, Love from Anna Hibiscus! showcases daily life in modern Africa. Great as a classroom or family read-aloud, it illustrates the commonality of cultures and experiences and inspires discussion.
"An empathetic look at hard problems, beautifully modulated for chapter-book readers." -- Kirkus Reviews
