The Amazing Adventures of Abiola (paperback)
Product Descriptionby Jeffrey & Debra Dean; Illustrated by Dwayne Ferguson
Abiola means "Born to Honor." Abiola is a very intelligent boy whose parents have taught him many great things about his African ancestry in the areas of inventions, pioneers, science and technology. Abiola begins to realize that very little, if any, of the information about his ancesters is being used in the public school curriculum. Abiola discusses the situation with his parents who show him how to research in different areas. Abiola then shares this information with his friends and teachers, and they all become excited, especially Abiola because he is anxious to learn more about his ancestors' contribution to the world.
