The Amazing Africa children’s book will be helpful in changing the narrative about Africa, to one which is positive. It is particularly important that African children are able to identify with the material they study, and more, to take pride in who they are. Amazing Africa will be useful and relevant for children of all ages.

It is interesting to see an alphabet vocabulary book that has carefully selected objects, places, and names from Africa to tell the African story. This book definitely stirs up and creates curiosity to know more about the beautiful continent of Africa. I can connect with the words and proverbs and believe this is going to change the way our kids learn.
