Anna Hibiscus - Atinuke Less a chapter book, more a collection of short stories about Anna Hibiscus and her family. Childlike but not childish, the stories share Anna's observations of her family and life in Africa. Readers will appreciate the similarities between American and the African culture described, as well as come to new understandings about the differences. A single chapter could be read as a stand-alone story time, opener to cultural discussion or research.
