Looking for more material in this area of study. A Harvard Professor I knew taught us this material in Grade School and this topic shall be delved into deeper by future scholars.

I am a homeschooler who is constantly looking for books to teach about African History. This is the best reference I have found to date on Ancient to old kingdoms in Africa. This is part of a six part series on the past kingdoms of Africa. It is geared for an upper elementary to middle school student. The author is from Kenya and I appreciated the time and justice the author gave to each part of Africa in the 6 total books. You will not be disappointed. I have purchased many books on African History for young people and this is the most through I have found. The books are in color and the book is arranged more like a textbook with inlays and little pop outs within the text. There is excellent art work throughout the book. I like this book because it covers less known kingdoms, and the information is in depth. I have found that many books on African History just repeat the very basic facts and offer no culture or richness, this book does. I highly recommend. I will be incorporating this series of books into our African studies curriculum.
