Overview

Helping kids understand their planet.

Featuring simple text and full-color photography, this book connects kids with all the facts they want to know in an easy-to-read format.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
The African landscape is varied, from the sands of the Sahara, Kalahari, and Namib Deserts to the waters of the Mara, Chobe, and Okavango Rivers, and the rocks of the Ethiopian Highlands to the grass of the East African Plains. Here, author Lisa Ryan-Herndon presents snapshot views of each region, supplemented by photos and information about some of the animals—predator and prey alike—who live there. Readers who may never climb the African mountains get to see the gelada baboon, walia Ibix, and Ethiopian fox up close. Those who are far from the desert sands can see the Dromedary camel, Augrabies flat lizard, and Namib elephants. This book cannot be a comprehensive catalog of all things African, but an amazing variety of animals are presented in its thirty pages. Curious readers will clamor for more! Part of the "Planet Earth" series. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green
