We all went on safari by Laurie Krebs; illustrated by Julia Cairns (2003)

Are you ready to leave your world behind and head on a safari? This wonderful book will whisk you there instantly.

The story is simple, a group of Maasai people wander through the grasslands of Tanzania spotting and counting animals.

The illustrations are fabulous, from the giraffes and zebras to the delightful Maasai people both big and small.

“We all went on safari,IMG_1279

When the day had just begun.

We spied a lonely leopard.

Arusha counted one.”

A lovely counting picture book that an audience of wild animal fans will find spellbinding.

Check out We all went on safari at Auckland Libraries.

  1. Thanks for sharing this book – I will have to add it to my collection. Great for PYP libraries (international mindedness) and books with counting or maths aspect also very useful for teachers.

    • It’s a lovely combination of prettiness and informativeness. In the back there’s an excellent section with facts about Tanzania and the Maasai people plus a pronunciation guide for some Swahili words.
