Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Pres-Grade 2. A lift-the-flap safari through Tanzania's Serengeti Plain. Each double-page spread on heavy paper shows a panoramic view of part of that vast area with a flap hiding one of the animals that lives there. Each flap's design provides a clue to what it's concealing by showing a distinctive feature of that animal (e.g., tail feathers, spotted fur, a leathery trunk). The eye-catching watercolor and gouache paintings give a real feel for the land and its inhabitants and are the key to this book's appeal. A brief, easy-to-read descriptive paragraph accompanies each illustration. This is a wonderful pictorial introduction to African animals for the very young that may also be used as a guessing game with older children. Whichever way it's used, it's sure to be a hit with young wildlife enthusiasts.?Arwen Marshall, New York Public Library

From Kirkus Reviews

Not all preschoolers are interested in farm animals, and for those who would rather visit the savannah than the barnyard, this book of African wildlife is a ticket to the Serengeti Plain. Each curved fold-out page creates a little mystery, showing just a section of the animal's fur, feathers, skin, or scales, while the text gives a few clues. When the page is opened, a full view of the animal and its name is revealed. The large drawings, done in a realistic, hyper-detailed style (every hair shows, every feather, every whisker) include views of the landscape and others in the habitat, helping readers visualize the animals in their natural environment. Ryder, in her first book, shows respect for preschoolers and their ability to learn by seeing. (Picture book. 3-6) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
