Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Antelopes leap! Elephants roam! Lions stalk and zebras gallop! Wild creatures from all over the African continent scamper through the pages of this delightful book, giving beginning readers a fascinating way to learn the alphabet while discovering some of their favorite animals. Award-winning filmmakers and photographers Dereck and Beverly Joubert bring their vivid images of African wildlife to this superbly engaging alphabet book.

Readers will find brief that text offers basic information about each animal alongside each letter and the corresponding wildlife photo. In some cases, more than one creature represents a particular letter. In a market filled with animal books, this high-interest choice stands out for the power of its photography, the track record of its authors who have won critical acclaim for previous childrenÕs titles, the tremendous kid-appeal of African animals, and the proven reliability of the National Geographic brand.

Review:

"This alphabet book features vivid photographs of African animals. Readers will recognize a cheetah, elephant, and lion, but this husband-and-wife naturalist team also highlights unsung species like the tsessebe, the umbrette, and the dung beetle. Even X finds a match: 'Xenopus bullfrogs like to sit in water that is extra shallow.' Appended animal facts and a glossary for words like 'vociferous' underscore the book's dual focus on diverse animal characteristics and language development. Ages 2 — 5. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
