Sankofa is the story of the West African bird whose name means ‘go back and fetch it’ . Sankofa represents the past, present and future. Young readers will be introduced to the bird, the special meaning of its name and enjoy a brief jaunt through black history as they journey back into time with Sankofa. They will discover Egypt, Queen Hatshepsut, Mansa Musa, Barack Obama and more. Sankofa is geared towards elementary age children but is great learning fun for the entire family.

The book is also accompanied by a corresponding workbook full of various learning activities. Each activity in the workbook reinforces the information in the book along with basic skills like math and problem solving.
