Sounds of the Savanna - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Arbordale Publishing.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
From the first light of dawn until the sun sets at night, the savanna is alive with noise. A lion roars in the early morning, a young baboon shrieks to warn others of danger at noon, and a young mouse squeals at dusk. What are the animals saying and why? Animals communicate in many ways; explore the thriving African savanna as its inhabitants “talk” to one another throughout the course of a day.

My Review:

With beautiful illustrations of grassland animals, Sounds of the Savanna explores the different sounds that wildlife make.  For instance, elephants make high-pitched sounds when they sense danger, and zebras also create a loud, high-pitched alarm for the same reason.  This book helps young children understand the sounds of savanna creatures, and helps them identify what kind of animals live on a savanna.

The "For Creative Minds" section in the back of the book has a teaching on sound waves, demonstrates how to make sound vibrations, and talks about the different high, low pitches of animals.

Sounds of the Savanna is a Fall 2015 release from Arbordale Publishing.

Win It!
