Publisher’s Book Synopsis: Can You Spot the Leopard? is author/artist Karen B. Winnick’s newest picture book, an adventuresome African safari presented through poems and full-color paintings. Readers begin at sunrise, climbing into a jeep for a bumpy ride to view the wondrous animals as they would on a real safari. All the poems are based on real observations of what animals do in the wild, related in an accessible way. There’s even a sighting, finally, of the elusive leopard, before returning to safari camp under a starry night. At the back of the book, further information is related about each animal. A fun, informational, educational adventure to read and reread.

Ms. Winnick is an animal enthusiast, president of the Los Angeles Zoo Commission, and author of more than a dozen picture books, including Gemina: The Crooked-Neck Giraffe, How Lucky Got His Shoe, and Mr. Lincoln’s Whiskers.

Can You Spot the Leopard? An African Safari shares about African Animals in rhyme. I like that the book introduces children to poetry, but in a way that's easy to read and understand. The book goes from page to page also introducing children to different animals that they may see on an African safari and a little about each of the animal. It's an educational learning book that's interesting and shared in such a way that it doesn't read like a textbook or encyclopedia entry. Kids will enjoy reading this book and learning about the different animals that can be found on an African Safari. I also liked that it showed the diversity of wildlife found in Africa and you can begin to see how many varieties of animals there can be in one area. It would be interesting if the author wrote more books like this, but for different areas in the world. This book could be used in variety of a different ways. It could be read and enjoyed at home or used in the classroom to discuss poetry or used in a science discussion about wildlife and animal habitats. Overall, I felt like this book was well-written. The pictures were attractive and engaging. This is a great non-fiction book to add to your library.
