Africa is brought to life in this fascinating look at the plants, animals, and people that make it such an intriguing continent. Studies of both traditional tribes and modern African cities showcase Africa's diversity, and authentic activities allow kids to dive into the rich culture by making a Maasai bivouac shelter, writing a fable in the African style, working as a field biologist, making a ritual elephant mask, and learning to tie an African Kanga dress. This cross-cultural activity book also shows kids what challenges Africa faces today while giving them a look at what it is like to live on this interesting continent.
