Anna Hibiscus' Song - Atinuke and Lauren Tobia

Nigerian-born author Atinuke first caught our attention with the Anna Hibiscus chapter books. Now she and illustrator Lauren Tobia welcome younger readers to the same enchanting world in Anna Hibiscus’ Song (Kane/Miller, $15.99). Surrounded by her family in their home, Anna Hibiscus is so happy that she doesn’t know how to express her joy. She asks all of her relatives – parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins – what she can do. Each of them has a different way of being glad, and Anna tries them all. Finally, she discovers what she can do when she is happy: sing! Ages 3-6. JLM
