This alphabet book features vivid photographs of African animals. Readers will recognize a cheetah, elephant, and lion, but this husband-and-wife naturalist team also highlights unsung species like the tsessebe, the umbrette, and the dung beetle. Even X finds a match: "Xenopus bullfrogs like to sit in water that is extra shallow." Appended animal facts and a glossary for words like "vociferous" underscore the book's dual focus on diverse animal characteristics and language development. Ages 2–5. (May)
