This is a terrific installment in the Anna Hibiscus series. As with the first installment, each chapter starts with the mantra "Anna Hibiscus lives in Africa. Amazing Africa" (7), providing a great perspective on an unrepresented locale in American children's fiction. The chapters in this edition cover stage fright, Anna's coarse and beautiful hair, the abundant power outages in Africa, and poverty. Even the weightier subjects are covered with a point of view that even my three-year-old son could understand (not to mention my five-year-old daughter) and the book gave us the foundation for some terrific conversations. I recommend this book to every parent. It's an important way to broaden your children's horizons or to reinforce their sense of self!
