Reviews all around the world
This latest addition to the Touch and Explore series introduces the youngest readers to a small collection of safari animals, focusing on lions, baboons, elephants, crocodiles, and giraffes. One two page spread also speaks of The Great Migration and features gazelles and zebras. There are flaps to lift and and cool textures to feel, and what's really great about this book is that there are also lots of cool facts to learn!
An elephant can weigh as much as ten cars! Crocodiles can go months without eating, and giraffes are the tallest animals in the world. Lions rest for 20 hours per day, and on the savanna you might also find animals like flamingos, hyenas, porcupines and kingfishers. This is a wonderful first introduction to non fiction for young readers, proving just the right amount of information and just the right amount of fun. It is guaranteed to please even the youngest animal lovers.
While the textures don't provide anything unexpected, kids will still delight in feeling the lion's hairy mane and the hippo's rough skin. Touch and Explore Safari is a must have for any toddler or young preschooler's personal collection and could even work for the classroom thanks to a particularly sturdy binding. An enthusiastic recommend!
