Young explorers embark on the safari adventure of a lifetime with this fabulous faux-journal, “written” in 1924 by fictional naturalist Rebecca Mayhew. Through her journal entries, youngsters accompany Mayhew as she explores mysterious Africa, from tracking lions in Nairobi to watching white rhinos in Pretoria to marveling at the birth of a baby giraffe in Botswana. Each info-packed page is filled with stunning photographs, colorful maps and illustrations, and fascinating facts about African animals and their environment. At the journeys end, children can assemble the eight animals from 59 included die-cut pieces and then display them on a gorgeous, removable 3-D diorama.
