Ikenna Goes to Nigeria by Ifeoma OnyefuluIkenna is looking forward to lots of sun when he goes to Nigeria - even though he and his mum are going during the rainy season. In Lagos, he plays with his cousins before driving to Onitsha to see other relatives. Then the rain starts! But there is still lots to do including meeting Great-Uncle Hillary, who drove the royal train across Nigeria in 1956, and going with his mum to the Osun Festival at Osogbo, where he is surrounded by the sights and sounds of age-old ceremonies and traditions. Ikenna feels sad leaving his big family behind, but he's determined to visit Nigeria again.
's Africana Book Award in 2008 and as soon as you look inside at the montage of photographs you'll see why. One of a series of books describing a visit to their family homeland from the point of view of a westernised child, it provides a great insight into another culture. Chapter headings, a glossary and index contribute to literacy learning and the subject matter could also contribute to cross-curricular work on geography or RE. Literacy Time plus'
