About the Book

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 I Like to Read® book encourages children to observe, enjoy, and appreciate the natural world.

"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 very beginning readers in a picture-book format."—Booklist
