Safari Adventure is written by Gail Skroback Hennessey
and published by Purple Turtle’s.
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 lot of useful information about the wild. For eg. I was unaware that
giraffe has blue tongue.
One thing which bothered me, that the name of the animals
were not clearly mentioned. So, I had trouble in identifying the animals like
melody,squirty. But finally I am happy to find a book, that gives knowledge and
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.
This book is worth recommending, I would request other kids also,
to pick up the book, they would not only be entertained but also gain valuable knowledge.
