Ghanaian Coming of Age Story | Read Around the World Summer Reading Series
I'm taking part in a great collaboration with bloggers from around the world: The Read Around the World Summer Reading series. Multiple times a week for the remainder of summer, someone recommends a multicultural themed book, for various different age ranges.
The novel, Between Sisters by Adwoa Badoe, is a coming of age story set in Ghana. It explores universal themes such as friendship, trust, love, and betrayal within a Ghanaian cultural context - a great way for older kids to learn about a culture. It truly gives a glimpse of modern day city living in Ghana and pointed us in the direction of making kelewele and listening to Highlife music in our exploration.
You can find the details and schedule of this project at Multicultural Kid Blogs . You can also follow along with our Pinterest Board filled with great books!
