I absolutely love the way this book is presented. At the very beginning it shows the flags of the areas that these animals are from as well as a map of Africa. It has marvelous photos of the Big 5 animals of Africa along with descriptions of how they live, what they eat, how they communicate etc.--and even better-for all you who home school--questions at the end of each animal section to review what is most important. It is written in language children will readily understand and the pictures are sure to capture any child's imagination. Do you know any child who doesn't love animals? I know I don't.
The book explains that most of these animals are close to extinction and that if that happens nobody will be able to see these marvelous creations in their natural habitats ever again--only in zoos.
This would make a great present to give a child at any time of the year and is sure to give them hours of entertainment and get those minds thinking and asking questions which can lead to further exploration!! This is the second book I have read and reviewed in this series (see my review of Book 3 in this series here)--it is every bit as good as the first and I highly suggest you get it for your child or a child close to your heart or even as a gift to a school's library or your child's teacher!!
