Synopsis

Nigeria by Ali Brownlie Bojang, Rob Bowden

Nigeria has a population composed of over 250 ethnic groups. It has a history that goes back at least 11,000 years; a wide variety of landscapes, from tropical rainforests to beautiful white-sand beaches; and abundant oil and gas reserves. However, Nigeria has many problems. In 1999, after almost three decades of military rule, the country returned to civilian, democratic government, but it will take time to reverse the damage inflicted by corrupt military regimes in the past. There is an enormous gap between rich and poor, with 80 per cent of the country's oil and gas revenues going to 1 per cent of its population. At the start of the twenty-first century, Nigeria still has a long way to go in order to meet the unrealized ambitions of its people.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
