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 was created by Karen B. Winnick. My children and I really enjoyed this book. It's geared toward 7-9 year olds. My sons are 11 and 9. My 11 year old loves all things animals. He loved that they had all the correct names and pronunciations. This was beautifully written and illustrated.
This would make a great gift for elementary school age children. We really enjoyed it. The poems are based on real observations of what animals do in the wild. Thank you to the author, publisher and Children's book Review for allowing me to read a copy of this book, all thoughts are my own.
