Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
African grasslands, called savannas, are home to a wide range of animals. Young readers can learn about this exciting ecosystem and the plants and animals that live there. Part of the "Animal Homes" series, this oversized reference is dynamically illustrated with detailed paintings. Maps showing where the world's savannas are located are dispersed throughout the text. The savanna is home to many large carnivores, and readers will learn about the food chain and how the animals live together. Discover who the fierce predators are and how the herbivores stay alive. As darkness descends, discover what happens on the night shift for many animals. Readers will also learn how humans are destroying the delicate balance of the grasslands through farming, hunting and poaching. An African grassland game that allows the player to follow crocodile eggs to the river helps test the reader's newfound knowledge. 2002 (orig. 2001), Peter Bedrick/McGraw-Hill,
