Africa, Amazing Africa: Country by Country

We rated this book:


Children will uncover the richness of the African continent––its geographical, cultural, and historical wonders––in this elaborately illustrated nonfiction text. They’ll explore its interior terrain as well as its exterior islands, and they will discover how vast Africa is. They’ll learn about the diversity of the people and the climatic extremes, from its scorching deserts and humid rainforests to its black volcanic islands and gorgeous beaches. Africa is home to the first university in the world. By contrast, parts of it are ravaged by poverty, war, and hunger. Youth will see its dichotomous nature as well as its breath-taking beauty.

This is a uniquely designed picture book, ripe with interesting facts. It covers each of Africa’s fifty-five countries. The material is well-organized and appears in an array of creative fonts. Symbols and graphics break up the information nicely and add an eye-catching quality.

Though some six- and seven-year-olds might enjoy the multi-colored images, the amount of data included may detract from their appeal. Africa, Amazing Africa: Country by Country is ideally for those aged eight and up, including adult populations. Additionally, it’s a wonderful resource for upper elementary school classrooms and libraries around the globe.
