Bella’s Adventures in Africa by Rebecca Darko & Rutendo Muzambi
This is a new children’s book about a girl who leaves England with her parents to embark on an amazing journey across eight African countries. It’s an unforgettable journey for Bella as she explores these countries with her parents.
“From a thrilling Safari adventure to an exciting treasure hunt, Bella discovers that the continent of Africa is bursting with new experiences.”
The book is a collection of nine short stories based in eight different African countries — Ghana, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Egypt, Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria and Tanzania. The book provides an amazing opportunity for children to learn about the cultures of different countries and helps them form a positive attitude towards people from a different background.
The stories are suitable for children from around 5 and above, I would say. They’re a bit too long for my just turned 3-year-old but I’m sure she’ll love me to read them to her when she’s a bit older. There are illustrations throughout the book too which is always fun as they add to the story.
It’s exciting to come along on Bella’s adventures and to learn more about these African countries. It’s fun for all kids but maybe even more so for children who have a connection to Africa. I have some friends who have spent a lot of time in Tanzania with their kids and a friend who’s partner is from Ethiopia. I’m sure their kids would love this book even more due to their tie to Africa but it’s definitely a book for all kids from all backgrounds and countries.
