Wild Animals of Africa

Hope Ryden, Author Dutton Books $12.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-525-67290-6
Naturalist and wildlife photographer Ryden, using the same abecedarian format as her popular Wild Animals of America ABC , shows youngsters the habitats of 26 animals that live on the African continent or in its waters and coral reefs. The exciting full-color photos provide vivid glimpses of the incredible variety of wildlife, from Aardvark to Zebra. Ryden's inspirational introduction advises readers who know these creatures from zoos to ``try to imagine how they look and behave'' in their natural habitats, and the book closes with three pages of additional information about the animals pictured. This is a book that stretches with a child's interest and understanding. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
