The Big Five




Have you read The Big Five by Bella Makatini yet?  If not, we recommend you check it out.

When you do, be prepared to invite these charming creatures into your lives.  If it doesn't have you hooked just from the bright illustrations on the cover, then just wait until you read what is on the  inside.  It's a charming story about a boy, Danny, and his grandfather. While spending a week together, Danny's grandfather teaches Danny about the "Big Five" animals of Africa.  Its simple text makes it ideal for younger grades, but do not let that stop you from using it with older learners.

by Bella Makatini and Judi Abbott
