Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–”Old Mikamba had a farm, E-I-E-I-O.” But there are no cows or ducks here, because Old Mikamba lives in Africa on a game farm. Here, readers are introduced to a baboon, cheetah, zebra, and elephant as well as a dassie and a springbok. Meant to be shared aloud, the text provides a variety of fun sounds to re-create with a partner. The “trill-trill” of the dassie and the “bleat-bleat” of the giraffe are sure to delight. Isadora's stunning collage brings the colors and textures of the African plain to life. Newsprint and printed paper provide rich textures and vivid color for  both the animals and the fabric of Mikamba's clothing. The animals are parent/child pairs and this augments the shared feel of the song. Concluding pages provide background on the featured species, including habitat, communication systems, and endangered status. Lovely to look at as well as pure joy to read aloud, this title will demand an encore again and again.–Carol Connor, Cincinnati Public Schools, OHα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

A familiar childhood song gets an African twist in Isadora’s latest picture book. She takes readers on safari to the plains of Africa to meet elephants, cheetahs, and dassies (“E-I-E-I-O”). Old Mikamba’s farm is a game park, so while there is some interaction between the two small children in the book and the animals, most of them are presented against a backdrop wilder and freer than any space Old MacDonald could offer his domestic stock. Rhinos “BELLOW-BELLOW” through the grass; a springbok “AH-AH-AHs” across a sun-baked terrain; and an elephant “BARAAA-BARAAAs” with a baby following behind. While the animal sounds are fun and lend themselves perfectly to a storytime rendition, the artwork is a particular treat. Isadora incorporates oil, ink, pencil, and printed paper to create collages that give a distinct sense of place, set against plentiful white space that allows the animals to pop on each double-page spread. An extensive concluding note provides interesting facts about all of the animals included, as well as a mention of the role game farms and parks play in protecting Africa’s endangered species. Preschool-Grade 1. --Kara Dean
Always the perfect gift
