Africa Day is a children's picture book inspired by events at a cultural festival, written by Ipswich resident, Chi Mary Kalu and illustrated by Jelena Jordanovic-Lewis
It showcases some interesting and colourful features of Africa and African culture, through the observations of a little boy.
Africa Day is full of easy-to-read and brilliantly illustrated pages that will engage young readers aged 5-10.
Moved by the curiosity and excitement of her own children at a cultural festival, author Chi pondered on our responsibility as parents and a community to teach or provide opportunities for all children to discover the interesting features replete in various cultures.
This story may stir an anticipation for the next Africa Day festival!
Chi also wishes to encourage young readers in our community, promote literacy and a lesson in diversity.
