Review by

Lovely little book about the appealing Anna Hibiscus who lives with her Canadian Mum, and her African Dad, Siblings, Cousins Aunties, Uncles, Grandparents, all together in a big house. Four little stories tell about the differences between Anna's family and her Mum's family, her family and the poor families that live all around her, the neat things about a large family and what happens when people move away from the homes they are used to

Review by

This was everything I had hoped it would be based on other reviewers. A really great early chapter books for read aloud. There are no calamities - no forced moral lessons - no special powers. Just a sweet girl who lives in Africa with her family. This book contains small glimpses into her life in the form of short story chapters that all flow together. We will definitely be reading more of this series.
