9780792276685: National Geographic Countries of the World: Kenya

Welcome to Kenya, land of light and infinite variety. National Geographic will be your guide in Nairobi, and into the bush beyond.

Kenya's busy capital bustles with crowds, traffic and markets selling produce from the heartlands. Out in the bush, a myriad of tribal peoples, including the Maasai, live more traditional lives. Your African odyssey will take you to the soaring Mount Kilimanjaro. A climb to its snow-capped peak will lead you through five different ecosystems. Such diversity is common to Kenya's landscapes and is also reflected in the country's stunning array of wildlife. Lions, zebras, and wildebeest roam the land, while the great rivers teem with hippopotami and crocodiles.

The human history of Kenya is no less diverse. From the first footprints of humans, to the colonial rule of the British and the Germans, major change has been a constant in the progress towards independence in the 1950s and prosperity in the 1960s. The book concludes with a look at the modern-day challenges facing Kenya.

National Geographic supports K-12 educators with ELA Common Core Resources.

About the Author:

Bridget Giles is a graduate of the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London. She has written and edited numerous books on Africa, its ethnic groups, history, and cultures.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4–7—Through a straightforward text, excellent maps, and a variety of full-color and historical photographs, students will gain a clear introduction to the country. Short, focused chapters and "At a Glance" spreads that pair facts with maps present information on the geography, environment, history, culture, government, and economy. The maps are especially illustrative as they include notations pointing out where photographs were taken. Although there are many books about Kenya, this one is clearly a standout. There is even a section at the end entitled, "Add a Little Extra to Your Country Report!" that suggests ideas and Web addresses for expanding students' knowledge. For those in need of an overview that is both factual as well as photographic, this is a good choice.—Genevieve Gallagher, Murray Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA
