By Kate
My 6 year old daughter & I both loved this book. The portrayal of Anna and her family is delightful, and it is so nice to read gentle, everyday stories about a child from a different continent. I've found it hard to find modern books where the content is suitable for a relatively young child who reads well, and have tended to fall back on the classics, but Anna Hibiscus and the sequel fill that gap ideally for us.

5.0 out of 5 stars A review by Josie age 7 7 Dec 2009
A Kid's Review
Its a really good book about a girl called Anna Hibiscus who lives in Africa and I think its nice that when she's hungry she can just climb the mango tree and eat mangoes. And I think its funny that when she goes on holiday to the beach it starts off with only her, her mum and dad and her baby brothers and at the end everyone is there.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful find! 8 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
'Anna Hibiscus lives in Africa. Amazing Africa.' So begins this book, and the three that follow. Anna Hibiscus lives with her African father and Canadian mother and her baby brothers and many other relatives in a large African city. The book gently celebrates the joyful everyday life of being a little girl in a loving home with two pesky but loved twin baby brothers, Double and Trouble. I bought all four books for my four year old granddaughter. She loves them and roars with laughter at Anna Hibiscus's adventures. It's a wonderful series, and they are some of the best books I have ever bought her.

This book deserves to be on every bookcase. We are certainly going to have it in the book bag for the children's area.

Beautifully written with wonderful characters and lovely morals.
We really enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book 7 Oct 2008
Anna Hibiscus is endearing, the illustrations are enchanting and the children I read it with(aged 5&8)were right there in West Africa learning with her about life and responsibility, and celebrating extended family and the threads that hold us all together. Beautiful. We can't wait to read the next one.
