Reliable customer service and no-hassle return policy. We generally rely upon actual consumer feedback for determining age appropriateness, but since this product is relatively new, our toy editors have provided their best estimate. I always have trouble with lenticular images. In the introduction Kainen he shares that his grandf Sometimes a book just reaches out and grabs me. Accompanying the images is Safari, the guide: It begins with an evocative journal of a safari along the Mara River in Kenya and interweaves the history of safaris. Natalie and I also did a Tiger safari in. This book met all my criteria! The facts and information are not so much that it feels like an encyclopedia entry but is still more than just a few bullet points.
Once enough consumer data is gathered, these charts will be updated accordingly. She covers her experiences and includes a brief history of African safaris and the current state of African wildlife. The African elephant snaps its ears. Each time you turn the page you encounter another animal, and the animal moves. I'm glad I checked this out from the library instead of buying it. It's like having a coffee table book come to life in your hands.
Watch a tarantula scuttle across the forest floor. You eagerly turn the page to see what else is in store for your journey. In the past decade, I've been a staff writer for National Geographic magazine and I'm the author of Safari Workman, 2012 , a New York Times bestseller, and the upcoming Ocean Workman, 2014 and well as another yet-to-be-named Workman title. Sidebars present essential data on each of the animals, including size, speed, location, population, life span, and more. Readers, as if on African safari, encounter eight wild animals that come alive using never-before-seen Photicular technology. The images are of very good quality and it is not like the traditional lenticular page where you see two alternating images, but rather it looks like a little movie. Imagine a field guide to all the animals you'd encounter on an African safari, but instead of looking at a photograph of them in the book you're reading, you're actually seeing a small film clip on the page of the animal in motion.
The African elephant snaps its ears. It's the romance of being on safari--and the almost visceral thrill of seeing the animals in motion-- in a book unlike any other. It was far from that. Dan Kainen and Carol Kaufmann tell their story of a personal safari, led by their guide, Massek, who showed them the many splendors 1st Read: January 25, 2015 There really isn't a lot of reading in this original book, which isn't to say that it was boring. With this astonishing book, kids get to part the mysterious veil of this sun-dappled land and reveal—in fluid 3-D motion—the living exuberance within. Eight individual animals get two-page spreads with narratives describing their lives, habits and interactions, along with fascinating facts to take away: a group of hyenas is called a pod; a sewer-like odor means hippos are near; William Cornwallis Harris, a naturalist, led the first safari in 1836 — and that was quite a grand adventure.
And they will be riveted by the animal images themselves. But how does this help me? Each full-color image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid, immersive visual experience. I couldn't put it down! A Bengal tiger on the prowl, and a brilliant green and red macaw soar above the canopy. I especially liked the information regarding the size, height, weight, habitat, land speed, and other pertinent information of each animal. Then, for each creature, she writes a lively and informative essay, along with vital statistics—size, habitat, range, diet, and more. I also bought one for a friend's son with special needs. Die Buchreihe zu Naturthemen im Retrolook spielt in einer ganz anderen Liga.
This is a child who is difficult to engage and this book immediately captured his attention. I live in the Washington, D. Featuring eight animals cheetah, rhino, elephant, giraffe, gazelle, zebra, gorilla, and lion , this title provides the information you'd expect to hear from a real safari tour guide about each animal. Why just read about the way a cheetah can run up to 60mph when you can actually watch him running, too? They were all fascinated by the movement of the animals. Safari is a magical journey.
And it's made well, and so reasonably priced. For example, our kids noticed that the cheetah when running looks like a bit like a snake -- the big cat gets long and thin and its body moves in waves. We see gorillas at play, a rhinoceros and its baby trotting across the savanna, a pangolin skittering along the landscape, an elephant bathing in a river. In a world saturated with video, the Jungle Photicular Book weaves a special spell into the minds of young adventures as they explore the amazing world around them and let their imaginations soar. Customer service is our top priority! The book is really all about the moving photos, which is a-ok with me because they are pretty gosh darn cool. You eagerly turn the page to see what else is in store for your journey.
Come face to face with our vanishing wildlife. Die Bildseite enthält jeweils Fakten zum vorgestellten Tier, die Textseite, die man hochklappt, erzählt vom Verhalten und Familienleben des vorgestellten Tiers. It is a great book to have in one's collection if you love the wild, untamed world and its creatures of all sizes. Such a clever idea and so effective! Then for each animal there is a lively, informative essay and an at-a-glance list of important facts. But now it is ready for another reader and I have to say goodbye.
