What’s that, Meerkat?
A walk through the African savannah.
The book introduces the different animals of the African grasslands through a meerkat. The verses are fun and rhyme. Many well-known animals such as elephants, giraffes, and hippos and lesser-known animals such as Honey badgers, Okapi, and dessert Warthogs are featured in the book. It showed most animals as eating human comfort foods like eclairs, hamburgers, etc.
Repeating text across the book works well given the target age group below six years. In addition, the animal illustrations are pretty realistic. Children can learn about different animals in the African Savanah.
A nice read-aloud book to introduce the animals of Africa.
