A vibrant, illustrated introduction to Ghana. ‘Ghana’ by Anna Makanda & Sharmane Barrett, this picture book is filled with fascinating facts about a wonderful country and is perfect for curious children who love geography and discovering new places. This is a fully illustrated book that tells you everything from where Ghana is on the Map to when the rainy seasons are and landmarks to look out for. Although, as it states, English is the official language, there are over 80 different languages spoken in the country and throughout the book there are words and phrases that have been translated into two of the most widely spoken languages, Asante Twi and Fanti which I thought was a really nice touch. Through Kobe, Adowa and Kwame Young readers get to know more about the day to day life of those who live in Ghana, as well as places to visit and information about the country’s history. The illustrations throughout are eye catching and lovely, I’m sure many young readers will enjoy exploring the pictures as they learn more about Ghana. This is a really well-executed, engaging book that would be brilliant to explore other cultures in schools, or for children who have Ghanaian heritage to learn more about the country.
