Captain Frankie and the tour guide Elia get you ready for an African adventure that will traverse across the great wilds of the Serengeti, Wanke, Kruger and more as you set out to explore and learn about the big five wild animals and the countries in which they live. Each page is colored with excitement and knowledge that your child is sure to fall in love with. The author, Anna Othitis does a fabulous job getting your little globetrotter ready and prepared to travel across the beautiful landscape of Africa. The fun begins with Othitis telling you to put on your safari hat and prepare yourself to learn all about where you must travel to see some of the world’s most amazing creatures. The way it is written you get a real sense of traveling on a plane as you make the flight to Africa. You begin the journey by learning about each country’s flag, which is highly important to help make each place seem more real to your child. This important addition to the story helps deepen the level of learning for any person who is adventurous enough to hop on board the imaginary plane with Captain Frankie, who incidentally was born and raised in Africa. The beautiful artwork that is included helps make your experience more real and creates a sense of a real escapade across the miraculous lands. The pictures are stunning and the added image of the plane and Elia’s motorbike adds a cute addition while you read along. It was fun pointing them out to my children while still getting a solid education on each animal. With such a thrilling intro your child will quickly become a part of the story. Each page is filled with so much telling information that you will learn much more than you expect while all along making it fun and interesting. The story helps describe in great detail the African elephant, lion, rhinoceros, buffalo, and the leopard. The description of animals includes what they look like, where they live and why, and who their enemies are. The question following each animal is helpful in getting all that information to stick and if you did not know the answer flipping back to hear it again was a perfect tool for my children. Overall, my children and I had a blast following along with Captain Frankie and Elia. It is the perfect book that will get your child excited about learning. This book helps your child use their imagination and really get into the fun of traveling in a plane while all along learning about such amazing creatures as well as the landscape. This is a book that we will revisit time and time again when we want to learn about African animals and have fun while doing it.

I love these books! In the past, I read The Seven Wonders of the World and The Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and was impressed with the presentation of information that would normally not keep the interest of youngsters. This one is a little different in that animals seem to keep the attention of children easier, but this is still a great book for teaching about some of Africa's animals. In Africa's Big "5" Wildlife Animals, Captain Frankie from Angelic Airlines takes the children to see wildlife in Africa. He has a friend on the ground this time to help show them the animals. Each section has a blurb about the animal, then interesting information (did you know that an elephant's tusks are teeth?), and questions at the end about what they just learned. Anna Othitis has done a great job once again with Africa's Big "5" Wildlife Animals. Not only does it teach children about Africa's animals, but they'll enjoy learning and will probably want to read it over and over.

This is such a fabulous little book aimed at giving kids an insight into the thrills of finding wild animals on an adventure. It contains loads of information, gorgeous pictures, a fun narrative & definitely written to entertain as well as inform. Ideal for beginner readers, older kids to delve into & parents will enjoy it as well. A good all-rounder. There is a section on the ‘big 5’ animals, explaining what they eat, how they hunt, etc .. great images of flags relative to the areas. All the while giving the important message of conservation. Only 32 pages but an absolute gem of a book. I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

The best safari adventures ever My summer babe and I both loved, enjoyed reading this book. It is our second book that we both read from the author Ms.Anna Othitis. I let my summer babe read first and see what does she think of the book. I also read it after she finished reading the book. She loves animals. There is no doubt that she will LOVED reading this story too. It gives her more information about the five wild animals mentioned in this book like elephant, lion, rhinos, buffalo and leopards. Captain Frankie is a very helpful pilot. Elia is the best tour guide while Angelic Airlines is the best airplane ever. You will learn so many amazing facts while reading this book. The best part is the question at the end of each chapters. It is like a homework in school. My summer babe and I highly recommends this book. If you love to fly and animals, this book is a must to read and enjoy your adventures with Africa's Five Wild Animals. The best safari adventures ever and looking forward for more of Captain Frankie's next adventure. We have not been to Africa but it is still in our families top of the bucket list. Disclosure: I received the ARC of the book to review. All our thoughts and opinions are 100% honestly mine.

I can surely say for a fact that most, if not all, children are fascinated by wild animals. I remember as a child watching countless documentaries about Africa and enjoying every trip to the zoo and my little boy also just loves elephants and lions and can't get enough of them. That said, this book is a great present to any child. In it, we are on an imaginary voyage across Africa to meet the big five wild animals. And the author of the book, Anna Othitis, was raised in Zimbabwe, so her first-hand experience comes across clearly. The descriptions of the animals and their habits are also accompanied by beautiful photos of them, a map and flag showing where they are from. There are even questions after each one for an even better learning experience for the little ones, and even the parents. "Africa's Big Five Wild Animals" is a continuation of the Captain Frankie travel books, and it makes a great companion to the others in the series.

Captain Frankie is back with another adventure for little ones to enjoy. This time he flies over Africa’s Wildlife Natural Parks to give us a view of five of Africa’s largest wildlife. Not only are there gorgeous pictures of these majestic animals, but there are facts included in the tour. I like the way the narration is written as if speaking directly to a child. This would be a great read-along for any small one. And the education is a plus. There were several facts that I didn’t know myself. It was also fun seeing the different colorful flags for each of the places these animals could be found. Captain Frankie is definitely a cool tour guide.

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-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!!
