“Around a giant kapok tree, bright parrots flit and fly. The rain forest is their world. Squawk! Squawk!” “In the green undergrowth, baby pandas chew on sprouts. The bamboo forest is their world. Grrr….grrr.” And “on the rolling plain, lions pounce. The savanna is their world. Roar! Roar!”
From monkeys and whales to polar bears and penguins, many kinds of animals and birds make their home in the various habitats of our planet. Just as the grassy savannas provide an ideal habitat for lions, zebras and elephants, mountains offer a welcoming home for animals such as bighorn sheep and bears.
Somewhere in the world there is a suitable environment for every creature, no matter how large or small. Even the deserts, the polar regions and our own backyards are home to a number of living beings.
With its large colorful art, Listen to our World is a gentle introduction for young children to the variety of creatures that share the earth with us.
** Recommended for ages 2 to 4 years.
