It’s the dry, dusty winter season in Nigeria, and Anna Hibiscus is getting ready to visit her Canadian grandmother in the third adventure of Atinuke’s lively chapter-book series.

Anna Hibiscus can’t wait to visit her grandmother in faraway Canada, where she will see snow for the first time! But before she goes, there’s much to do—including searching in a department store for clothes to keep her warm in cold weather and saying goodbye to the big family she loves. Atinuke’s inviting text and Lauren Tobia’s expressive drawings capture Anna’s life with her parents and grandparents, baby brothers and cousins, aunties and uncles during the Harmattan season, when dust from the Sahara Desert blows everywhere. To conserve water, the family uses leftover wash water for their garden, but Anna learns that some children outside their gate have no water at all. Can she do anything to help? “Once again, Anna demonstrates a growing social consciousness,” said Kirkus Reviews of this third adventure in a warm series that is sure to captivate.
