African Savanna by Donald M. Silver, Patricia J. Wynne


African Savanna by Donald M. Silver, Patricia J. Wynne

The African grasslands stretch across the continent below the Sahara. In a square of land about the size of a living room, children will see animals they might have encountered only at the the rewards and dangers of their natural home...and observe how these creatures live with each other in a changing, endangered environment. It's an exciting journey of discovery, coming to you from the One Small Square series of interactive science and nature books...where the next stop could be as near as your backyard or as far as half a world away.
