Book Review: Anna Hibiscus

Anna Hibiscus by Atinuke

Anna Hibiscus (Anna Hibiscus, #1)
by Atinuke, Lauren Tobia (Illustrator)

5 out of 5 stars

Anna Hibiscus lives in Nigeria, in a beautiful garden compound with all her aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and her wonderful parents and twin brothers. They are a very big loud family! Sometimes Anna wishes she could have a few moments alone, but when she goes on vacation with just her parents and brothers, she begins to miss all the rest of her big family. How can they manage without everyone to pitch in and help?

I loved this sweet book! Anna is so adorable, and I loved her amazing family. I especially loved learning about Nigerian culture and traditions. It’s so interesting and beautiful!

The writing style is light-hearted but emotional. In just a few words, the writing really paints a picture for you of Anna and her family. The stories are told in a straightforward manner, but there is a lot of depth and meaning in them as well. I love the themes of family, generosity, love, and gratitude.

I love the beautiful illustrations! The black and white art work is absolutely lovely, and brings Anna’s family to life. You can see Anna’s energy on each page!

This book is perfect for ages 7-10.
