The irrepresible Grace from Amazing Grace is back and older in this book about a visit to her father's home in Ghana, West Africa. Grace is nervous about seeing her father whom she has not seen for years. She is also uncertain about traveling to another country. She is somewhat relieved when her Nana volunteers to come, but Nana's presence does not allay Grace's fear of her unknown stepfamily, particularly her stepmother. Grace has continued to love books which have warned her repeatedly about wicked stepmothers. Over time Grace finds her family to be kind, if slightly different than her family at her Mom's home. She also enjoys learning about African culture.
This book is good for discussions of familial and cultural expectations. The older Grace is still engaging. The illustrations are beautiful and informative. The picture oF Grace patting a crocodile is particularly fascinating.
