This book is about a girl that lives in Africa. It discusses some things about African culture. It also gives an example of children that are not of the same socio-economic status as the main character. These children have to work on the street to sell oranges and earn money. Such stories are used to show that despite our differences, people have many similarities. The book also teaches readers character lessons related to being kind to others. The book is a great way to expose young children to the lives of others, but at the same time showing that we have more similarities than differences. Our class focus is not to discuss the aspects of different cultures, but to practice reading comprehension, including relating story events to ourselves. If questions come up about facts not addressed in the story, the student will be encouraged to research these interests with their parents. I will also research any questions that arise. As in all my classes, each child and their perspective will be included and encouraged. In addition, I always suggest that parents approve and discuss any books that their children read.
The student will need to have access to the book, "Anna Hibiscus" by Atinuke, so that they can read it.
