ABC Safari
Let's search for adventure above in the sky. We'll scout through the mountains and hills, and then try exploring the forests, the meadows and plains, across the dry desert and through jungle rains. We'll trek through a swamp, a puddle, a pond, in lakes and the river, the ocean beyond. But, what are we looking for? Who will we see? Find animals on this Safari with me! Once you've discovered all the animals, turn to the "For Creative Minds" educational section for sorting cards and animal fun facts.
