Five-year-old Arinze and his older sister Cheta wait impatiently for school to end. Mommy and Daddy have told them this year they're going to visit Africa. Arinze and Cheta have never visited Africa, but they've grown up listening to their parents talk about the wonders of the great continent.
Starting in Kenya, Arinze's family travels to ten African countries, demonstrating how vibrant and multifaceted the African landscape and cultures really are. They get to go on safari, gaze with wonder on Victoria Falls and Mount Kilimanjaro, and explore the continent's architectural and historical wonders.
The best part of the vacation comes at the end though, when they get to visit their grandfather in his village in Nigeria. There, the family's connection to Africa is strongest. Both Arinze and Cheta discover a new pride in their roots--and a better understanding of where they came from.
Illustrated with vibrant photographs of the sights, animals, and places Arinze and Cheta see on their vacation, My Africa Vacation teaches children of all backgrounds of Africa's diversity and richness--and encourages them to one day take their own trips to a continent unlike any other.
