This attractive book guides students on a journey through Africa, incorporating study of the history, geography, animals and culture of its peoples. After an overview of Africa, the book divides the continent into five regions. Students journey through each region by visiting seven countries, learning about 23 animals, reading letters from missionaries and school children, and enjoying over 550 color photos and 75 maps.

Students will visit a tannery and mosaic factory in Morocco, travel the Nile on the cruise ship "Cleopatra," watch batiking in West Africa, and have other adventures. The sections on the countries are written in story form, taking the reader for an exciting ride.

The seven countries featured are Egypt, Morocco, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, and Madagascar.

The Resource Book can be used alone or with the other books in this series. A perfect home school or school resource for an African unit study!

  Great Resource!

I'm using this book with my boys who are 7, 6 and 5. I just realized it's for kids who are 7th grade & up! It's worked fine for my kids--a few things are over their heads or we brush over, but for the most part it is an excellent resource, even for this age. I love that it's all there--the maps--the colorful pictures, the reading & review, etc. I've used Tapestry of Grace previously, which I love, but I feel overwhelmed with trying to collect all of the materials from the library, purchasing them, etc., and making sure we cover all of the right stuff. This book is colorful, informative, interesting, and educational. I highly recommend it!!
