Lions and Zebras and Elephants…Oh
Children have a natural fascination with
animals. Now take this fascination a step closer to reality, and you have an engaging tale in the picturesque setting of Africa.
Mac, Sam, and several other family and
friends embark on a trip to Africa as part of their camping treat, to learn about various animals living
in this country. Several up close encounters with snakes, hyenas, and elephants, delight and scare them all at the same time.

This book along with the rest of the
