Sleepover in Africa at Amani’s Graduation
From the Developer
Grab your passports, pack your pajamas and join Juliet and Clarity on a Sleepover in Africa at Amani’s Graduation! After all, who doesn’t love a Sleepover? Narrated by writer, actress, storyteller and Internet radio host Kelly Carlin, this 30-page fully illustrated interactive book is perfect for ages 4-8!
Amani is graduating from high school in Rwanda. On Clarity’s travels to Rwanda to celebrate Amani’s graduation, Clarity’s homework disappears! What happened to Clarity’s homework? Children help solve the mystery and learn about Rwanda through an interactive map, pop-up glossary, pop-up facts about the country, choose-your-own-ending, and mini-activities. Narration is accompanied by simultaneous text highlighting to support early readers.
The lovable characters, humor, story and dynamic interactive features are guaranteed to engage, entertain and educate. At the end of the story, don’t forget to take a look at the photos of the real Amani, her school and her friends! The real Amani, living in Rwanda, will be graduating in 2014.
Also don’t forget to watch the short video about Every Child is My Child (www.everychildismychild.org), the organization who granted Amani with a scholarship so she could attend high school. Half of proceeds from Sleepover in Africa at Amani’s Graduation will go towards a scholarship fund with Every Child is My Child so other children can go to high school.
