Description

Look! An elephant eats. Look! Giraffes drink. Look! A warthog digs. A gorilla hides, wild dogs listen, zebras run, monkeys sit, hippos splash, and a rhino naps. Each line of text is illustrated by a two-page spread with a beautiful painting of an animal Ted Lewin has seen on his journeys to Africa. At the end of the story, a boy reads, plays, and dreams, surrounded by toy animals that represent each of the real ones. This book encourages children to observe, enjoy, and appreciate the natural world. Guided Reading Level D.

"Emergent readers will relish decoding the text; thoughtful youngsters might also catch the subtle link forged by the boy's imagination between his toys and their living counterparts."—School Library Journal
 
"The sentences of one to three words per spread in a large, clear font and the straightforward text-to-action correlation make for solid and attractive support for beginning readers in a picture-book format."—Booklist
