Timberdoodle's review
Best Instruction on Africa for This Age Group
Perhaps, like our family, you have been reading the news articles about unrest in Egypt, your church has missionaries at work in Nigeria, or someone in your family has lived in Africa. Maybe you simply want your children to gain an understanding of and love for this large, diverse, and beautiful area of God's creation. Whatever your goals, Journey Into Africa is the best instruction in African geography, history, and culture that we have seen for this age group.

African History, Landmarks, Culture, and More
Jouney Into Africa is arranged so that after each chapter discusses a particular region of Africa, you will delve into a specific country or two within that region. Your personal tour guide is a local resident, and you will have conversations with a variety of people along the way. As you move through the country, you will become familiar with that area's history, natural landmarks such as rivers or deserts, cultures and religions, local art forms, building styles, and much more. Prominent on the pages are countless photographs and maps, along with an occasional letter from an African school student or an easy-to-cook regional recipe. Each chapter ends with retention and discussion questions, possible research topics, vocabulary review, silly jokes, or recommended books or DVDs for continued study.

Profiles of People Who Made a Difference
Under the sections titled In Service of Others, you will find 10 people profiled who have helped Africa in some distinct way. Whether as a mechanic and pilot for missionaries' planes, or a doctor in Madagascar, let these people's lives and experiences be an inspiration to your family to see what how your abilities can be uniquely used for God's Kingdom.

Fascinating African Creatures
After you have studied the whole of Africa, you will get to focus on 27 fascinating African creatures. From Flamingoes to Warthogs, Lemurs to Camels, you will find these critters extraordinary. Finally, you will end with a look at several African forms of art, and have the opportunity to try a couple of projects yourselves.

Written From a Christian Foundation
This book is written from a solidly Christian foundation, and rather than avoiding difficult subjects such as AIDS or Islam, it covers them in an age-appropriate manner. Let this be an opportunity to discuss these topics with your children, and help them understand them from God's perspective.
