It’s me, Amadi, and I’m in charge of announcing the program for today.
Both Mama Katia and Mama Dimitrea stop at Bees Knees Reads for an interview with children’s book illustrator and world traveler Kim Baise. Also, don’t miss her review of Amadi’s Snowman in an earlier post.
Each week, I will ask three trivia questions about one of the countries participating in our blog tour, and I’m happy and proud to begin with Nigeria. At the end of the month, we’ll draw a winner among the participants who gave the right responses, each week, and they’ll win a prize.
1. Find the name of the Nigerian Author, born in an Igbo village, like me, who wrote the novel “Things Fall Apart” (most widely read book in modern African literature.)
2. A question about climate : what is the name of the wind that blows south from the Sahara during the dry season?
3. What are Nigeria’s direct neighboring countries?
Send your responses at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll give you the answers next week.

And now, guess where we’re going tomorrow? Did you guess? Yes, Nigeria! We’ll visit the library at the Nsukka Children’s Center during story hour. We have great photos, and I just can’t wait. See you all tomorrow…
