My Thoughts

This book was great. Explaining that most of the animals mentioned were close to extinction and that if that happens, no one will be able to see these animals again, my boys absolutely loved it. Of course, I read through it, then both of them read it on their own kindles. My 9 year old is more of a reader, and more into outdoors stuff, science, and animals, where as my 7 year old is all about sports and games, but they both really enjoyed it a lot.

At the beginning of the book is a map of Africa, along with flags as to where these animals are from, and that’s awesome. Huge photos of the big 5 animals are in there also.

I would highly suggest you get this for your child or one that you are close to that you would get gifts for, because this is not only very explanatory, but it’s also very likely to provide hours of entertainment!

“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!” – review from Miki’s Hope

“Great for kids and their parents alike. Mine were enthralled! They leafed through this book again and again, marveling over the pictures, poring over the maps.” – review from Amazon
