Ted and Raymond are getting ready for their great African adventure. They pack all the things they will need for their trip, travel on an airplane, and land in a strange new country. They learn about the dress, culture, food, and animals of Africa. And so will your child. This book might also ease the fears of young children who are about to travel for the first time.
There are some problems with mixing present and past tense, but this doesn't detract from the narrative. This book has been delightfully illustrated by the author's husband, Chester McDaniel. I especially loved the drawings of the African animals that Ted and Raymond saw on their safari. All in all, "African Safari with Ted and Raymond" is a fun and educational book for children of all ages.
