Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Naturalist and wildlife photographer Ryden, using the same abecedarian format as her popular Wild Animals of America ABC , shows youngsters the habitats of 26 animals that live on the African continent or in its waters and coral reefs. The exciting full-color photos provide vivid glimpses of the incredible variety of wildlife, from Aardvark to Zebra. Ryden's inspirational introduction advises readers who know these creatures from zoos to ``try to imagine how they look and behave'' in their natural habitats, and the book closes with three pages of additional information about the animals pictured. This is a book that stretches with a child's interest and understanding. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-- Full-color photographs taken on site in Kenya and in United States zoos illustrate this alphabet book in which the letter and the name of the animal are the sole text. Although the postscript to the text extends the information on each animal well beyond the interest and cognitive needs of all but the most precocious abecedarian, the format is not likely to appeal to students beyond the primary level. The adjectival form of names such as ``spotted hyena'' and ``Thomson's gazelle,'' along with local descriptors such as ``Queen Malila,'' an African name for the giant tortoise, are used to create entries for each of the 26 letters. The juxtaposition of close-up photographs of the cheetah and the dik-dik or the unicornfish and the vervet monkey may confuse the relative size of these animals for very young readers. Books about wildlife abound, most with comparable photography and far more complete and informative descriptions. As alphabet books go, this one will leave readers with deja zoo. --Nancy E. Curran, formerly at Charleston Junior High School , IL
