Depicts a warm, loving, multigenerational family; commonality of cultures, values and responsibilities.Anna Hibiscus has made friends in the village - the local children share their games, and Anna shares what she's learning in school. Even her big girl cousins help teach. And then there's Sunny Belafonte, who is all alone, and who she - and grandfather - are determined to help. There's so much to do - can they really make a difference? Featuring warm, loving multi-generational family relationships, Love from Anna Hibiscus! showcases daily life in modern Africa. Great as a classroom or family read-aloud, it illustrates the commonality of cultures and experiences and inspires discussion.

Horn Book Review

These installments of Atinuke's chapter-book series--set in a contemporary "big busy city" in "Africa. Amazing Africa"--revisit themes of family, tradition, biracial/bicultural identity, wealth disparities, friendship, and more. Satisfying resolutions for most of the personal and broader troubles Anna Hibiscus faces arise through guidance from her elders and her own thoughtful introspection, along with large helpings of humor and goodwill from those around her. [Review covers these Anna Hibiscus titles: Go Well, Anna Hibiscus!, Love from Anna Hibiscus!, Welcome Home, Anna Hibiscus!, and You're Amazing, Anna Hibiscus!.] (c) Copyright 2018.
