3-D Explorer Safari Animals: A journey through the African wilderness

We had to check out a copy of 3-D Explorer: Safari Animals after having enjoyed the other books in the series. Three years ago this summer I reviewed the 3-D Explorer books over at 5 Minutes for Books. As I explained then, we "l-o-v-e-d" these books and that remains true. The Oceans book, in particular, has received a lot of affectionate attention around these parts over the past few years. (He still pulls it out to look at.)

When I saw that 3-D Explorer: Safari Animals had become available, I knew we'd have to take a peek. As suspected, Bookworm1 enjoyed it. (Although, in truth, it still isn't as exciting as the Oceans title.) He liked this new title for much the same reasons though - the 3-D pop-ups which brings life on the African wilderness to life.

The book is divided up by page spread into different topics. The Table of Contents is as follows:

  • Going on Safari
  • Safari Habitats
  • Fight to Survive
  • Mountains
  • Forest Life
  • Grasslands
  • Savanna
  • Wetlands
  • World of Water
  • Water Hole
  • Desserts and Drought
  • On the Ground
  • Towers and Burrows

Open up the page to the Grasslands and giraffes pop up on the page, eating leaves out of trees, while warthogs and ostriches graze below.

Just like the other books in this series, this new title is a delight to look at. The information contained in this book is given in easy-to-read paragraphs. Each 3-D page spread provides a sentence of information about each individual animal which you see. It's not an encyclopedia of knowledge, but rather a novelty book with fun facts to expand the young reader's understanding of different habitats. It is a fun diversion.

Thanks to Silver Dolphin Press for providing us a copy to browse through. We surely do appreciate it!

As soon as I saw the picture I knew the series!! We still have, and read, the other 2 books that we won from you. My animal lover especially likes the ocean book. :D
