Travel across the plains and through the jungle with this illustrated board book!

Look! An elephant eats. Look! Zebras run.

Very simple text is paired with full-page, realistic illustrations by Caldecott Honoree Ted Lewin, whose luminous illustrations of warthogs, rhinos, and more were inspired by photographs taken on a trip across Africa.

This sturdy and stunningly illustrated board book invites the youngest readers to observe wild animals in their natural habitats. On the final pages, the story comes back home and we see a young boy reading, surrounded by toy versions of the animals he's visited in the books pages.

An ode to the natural world and the power of imagination, this is sure to be a favorite for curious kids who love interesting animals.
