Safari Adventure is written by Gail Skroback Hennessey and published by Purple Turtle’s.
Reason for liking the book
I loved the book from the start. The book has simple English phrases, which make it easy for the kids to read. Not only this, the book is based on a theme “Saving the Endangered Species”, so it provides you with a lot of useful information about the wild. For eg. I was unaware that giraffe has a blue tongue.
One thing which bothered me, that the names of the animals were not clearly mentioned. So, I had trouble identifying the animals like melody, squirt. But finally, I am happy to find a book, that gives knowledge and entertain us.
Story in short
The story is around six animals, who along with a park ranger goes for a safari. They see, many wild animals over there, like tiger, leopard, elephant, giraffe, rhino etc. The ranger and purple- the tortoise, inform the rest of the gang, about the endangered species. They also discuss that how tigers are being killed for the fur, in order to make beautiful coats. Similarly, rhinos are killed for the horn, which is used in making medicines. In the end, they all decide to become Junior Park Rangers, in order to educate the public about saving the endangered species from extinction and also contribute financially in saving the animals.
I simply love the book, I would request other kids also, to pick up the book and got through it.
