Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

ABC's Trip To Africa by Ozi Okaro is an adorable way of teaching children the alphabet as well as discovering the continent of Africa. In this book, the author takes young readers on an exciting journey through Africa, telling them about the plants, animals, musical instruments, places people live, and many other things while teaching them the alphabet. The author's concept works well here. Kids learn not only about a new place and the things found there, but they also learn the alphabet by the time they finish reading the book.

The author's idea is wonderful and there can't be a better way to teach kids the alphabet and new things. The illustrations are bright and colorful and they make the book more interesting. The pictures make teaching easier and help readers understand what the author is trying to convey to them. The book can be used by parents and grandparents as a bedtime story to read out to their kids and grandkids. It is also good for reference in school libraries for kids to learn more about Africa. Books that have a concept and educational theme are perfect for kids as it makes teaching new ideas easier. The pictures that complement the words are equally helpful when it comes to understanding new thoughts, ideas, topics and words.
