Anna Hibiscus’ Song

anna hibiscus songAnna Hibiscus lives in Africa. Amazing Africa. She is so happy that she almost floats out of the mango tree. When she asks her grandparents, Aunt Joli, Uncle Tunde, and her cousins what they do when they are happy, they all offer suggestions. She asks her father and mother, and her mother knows how to channel Anna’s infectious happiness. Anna climbs back into the mango tree and sings her happiness song. Gorgeous, colorful illustrations feature the daily life of a large extended family in urban Africa. This is the first picture book that brings Anna’s world into full color. It could be used as an introduction to the four chapter books about Anna. mjw
