Young readers will enjoy comparing and contrasting the African setting with their own surroundings, noticing similarities in the prevalence of cell phones and the internet, while also spotting important cultural differences, such as the custom of using one’s fingers when eating a traditional African meal.

Happily, Grandfather invites Sunny Belafonte to come and live with them, and be part of their family. She amends for it by working hard the next day, bringing all the other girls oranges, and at the end, she's proud of how hard she worked.Then I realized that Atinuke uses this story to introduce to kids the notion of having lots of cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents around at all times.

Each of the four chapters (Anna Hibiscus on Holiday, Auntie Comfort, Anna Hibiscus Sells Oranges, and Sweet Snow) is a story that can stand alone. Follow her day as she talks to her grandparents, aunties, cousins, her uncle, father and finally her mother, who each offer her a way to express herself. This delightful story about a happy girl learning to express her feelings is a wonderful celebration of the joy of life.Readers will happily follow as she goes on a seaside vacation, helps plan a party for Auntie Comfort from Canada (will she remember her Nigerian ways? Admittedly, I would have liked Atinuke to give her books a country and not just a vague “Africa” for where they take place. The conclusion is not moralistic, necessarily, nor is it simplistic--but it does seek to reinforce the status quo of Anna's family as normal and good.

Anna Hibiscus is a little girl who lives in a beautiful white compound surrounded by her extended family. But that's not quite enough--and so all the big cousins come to help, and so on, and so forth, until the whole family is together again, and everyone is happy.The four stories contained in the book each share a truth that is communicated through the story and pictures without being preachy. She has bright, healthy oranges and a clean dress, and sells many more oranges than the other girls, but when her father, uncle, and grandfather wonder what upset the girls selling oranges outside--some of them in very difficult life situations--Anna realizes that she made a mistake.

The only book that comes to mind was City Boy by Jan Michael, and that certainly was a title for older readers.
