African Wildlife Alphabet Number Book

Recommended Price 
June 2005
About the book: 

Aimed at 3 to 5 year olds, this title introduces the alphabet and basic numbers and counting through the theme of African wildlife and nature. 

Fully illustrated throughout, it is a 'first' book of the alphabet and as such features several single words to represent each letter from A to Z, and wildlife themes to introduce counting. Colourful scenes of the African bushveld, the coast, night-time and river environment reinforce words encountered earlier in the title and help young children to "test" their knowledge while learning about the environment. 

Simple activities follow in which children can identify the animals they have seen, match animals to their shapes, identify animal hides, and learn comparisons.
