Did you know that there are 53 independent countries in Africa? It means many different peoples, languages, religions, buildings and food are found there. And as if that wasn`t enough, an amazing variety of animals and plants live there as well-zebras, elephants, lions, hippopotamuses, hyenas and rhinoceroses that roam the wildlife reserves created to protect them from human predators. Africa is also a continent of ancient monuments, like the pyramids of Egypt, as well as modern cities -- you`ll find that the old and the new exist side by side. The maps show where each country is located, what it looks like and who its neighbors are. You`ll also find each country`s colorful flag displayed. In the middle of the book is a page of removable stickers and at the end you`ll find an interesting activity and a useful glossary and index.
