Publisher: Wide Eyed Editions

This beautiful and fascinating book explores the 54 countries in Africa, showcasing their unique character, landscape and culture. Each region has its own focus, with pages devoted to the history, the wildlife and the people of the area. From the deserts of North Africa, to the wetlands of Southern Africa, the forests of Central Africa to the coastlines of West and East Africa, this continent has a vastly diverse environment for animals, plants and people to flourish.  

Did you know that there are forest elephants and desert elephants, each different to the savannah elephant? Did you know that in Cameroon alone, there are over 270 languages and dialects spoken? Did you know that there are still three kingdoms in Africa, and there have been many African empires across human history?

With spreads on global migration, ways Africa has influenced the world, change-makers and superstars, and a glossary and index at the back, this book is contemporary, vital and will appeal to all upper primary children. Fact fans will love poring over it, as it covers history, geography, arts, sports, animals, religion and a whole spread of flags. 

Africana is a winning combination of stunning colour illustrations and accessible information, spanning all areas of this richly varied continent.
