Africa Picture Books Part 1

We're still enjoying our trip around the world via picture books. I found A LOT of picture books about Africa. We're about 2/3 of the way through them and are leaving for a trip to visit my parents for a week, so I thought I would post what we have read so far. I am thinking of taking a break from our "trip around the world" when we finish Africa and spend some time with a chemistry set that has been sitting around for literally years waiting for me to get motivated to use it with the girls. the girls are perfectly happy to spend most of their "school day" cozy on the couch with a bunch of picture books, but I am ready for a chance of pace.

Anyway, here are the picture book about Africa that we have enjoyed, so far.

When Africa Was Home
The Village of Round and Square Houses
Pulling the Lion's Tail
Somewhere in Africa
Boundless Grace
Over the Green Hills
Bringing Rain to the Kapiti Plains

My Painted House, My Friendly Chicken, and Me

I printed off your list and was able to get most of them at the library.

The kids enjoyed them and said they wanted to get more. I also showed them on the map where Africa and South Africa is. Thanks for the list.
