Using cumulative verse, this colorful picture book introduces children to the lions, zebras, elephants, impala, hippos, trees and grasslands that make up the East African ecosystem, while giving young readers an understanding of the interdependency of life.
Exotic environments like the African savanna have long held a fascination for young readers. Through singsong verse, kids learn how all living things in this important ecological community rely on one another for their existence, and that when one of these animals or plants is killed off or goes extinct, the web of life is broken. Luminous paintings by Tom Leonard capture the untamed beauty of this timeless, endangered environment. This book is a must have for any young naturalist (ages 3-8) hoping to learn about how all life is connected in the natural world.
