School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-Fans of the series will not be disappointed in these latest books about Anna Hibiscus. In the first, the African child and her family help her prepare for her first trip to Canada to visit her grandmother; the second book continues with her actual trip and the fun experiences in the snowy north for the Christmas holiday. Once again, Atinuke handles the complexity of life in Africa (and the differences between life there and in North America) with deftness and grace. Serious concepts like racism, poverty, and social activism are covered as simply and expertly as dealing with taking the blame for a sibling's misbehavior without becoming heavy-handed or unsuitable for early chapter-book audiences. Although elements of Anna's life may be foreign to some readers, her sweet nature and youthful troubles are common to children everywhere. The expressive black-and-white images that weave seamlessly through the texts enhance the stories beautifully. "Anna Hibiscus" is a lovely, rare bird of a series, providing a modern view of another culture in warm, approachable language.-Nicole Waskie-Laura, Chenango Forks Elementary, Binghamton, NY (c) Copyright 2011.
