PreS-Gr 2-Upon seeing his reflection at a waterhole, a young rhinoceros is discouraged that he does not have horns like his mother's. ``Be patient,'' she says. Shukudu hears the same advice from other friends: the young stork learning to fly, the chameleon learning to change color, the fruit bat learning to hang upside down. When he returns to the water hole months later, he sees that his horns have grown and receives hearty congratulations from his friends. Shukudu is a likable character with whom young children will identify. The lesson of patience is presented in a beautifully constructed book with bold watercolor and collage illustrations to give the flavor of the African bush and the animals that inhabit it. An effective story-hour read-aloud.-Helen Rosenberg, Chicago Public Library, IL
