“Niyah Zuri & The Pharaoh’s Throne” a new children’s book, telling stories of different cultures

Joining us today is Author of Niyah Zuri & The Pharaoh’s Throne, Anna Nyakana.

Niyah Zuri & The Pharaoh’s Throne is a new children’s book, with a mission of telling stories of different cultures. 

Through her own personal experiences, Anna discovered there was an overwhelming need for multicultural children’s books where heroines could slay the fiercest of dragons versus filling the typical princess in distress role.

This chapter book is geared towards upper elementary through lower middle school readers and comes equipped with a full glossary and free online resources for parents and teachers to access.
