About the Author:

Laurie Krebs, a seasoned traveller and former teacher from Connecticut, was inspired to write this book after going on a safari in Tanzania. A mother of four grown children and five grandchildren, she seeks to expose all children to a variety of different cultures and environments through her writing. Julia Cairns began her career as a fine artist when she moved to Botswana where she worked for nine years. She continues to be inspired by the joy and hopeful spirit of the African people. She also illustrated the soon to be released Grandad's Tree: Poems About Families (2002) for Barefoot Books. She currently resides in Northern California with her husband and two children and a bevy of farm animals.

Review:

In this charming tale, your child follows a group of Maasai people as they travel across Tanzania, encountering big cats, ostriches, warthogs, monkeys, elephants, and other fascinating wildlife. There is also a glossary of Maasai names and a review of Swahili numbers from one to 10. --Your Big Backyard

The text's easy, natural rhythm makes reading aloud a pleasure...Each sharply detailed scene glows with jewel-like color, set off by the traditionally dressed human figures' heads and limbs. Further information about the Maasai, Tanzania, the ten children's Swahili names, and the equal number of wild creatures met along the way close this brilliant, horizon-expanding outing. --Kirkus Review (starred review)

Youngsters will learn numbers from one to ten in English and Swahili as Mosi, Tumpe, Arusha, and other friends count African wildlife. Attractive borders frame vibrant watercolor spreads of different types of animals, including giraffes, elephants, zebras, and lions. The rhyming singsong verse, beginning with the refrain 'We all went on a safari' lends itself to a fun read-aloud. --School Library Journal
