I See the Sun in Botswana
By Dedie King with illustrations by Judith Inglese
For children ages 5 and up
What must it be like to have the world’s most beautiful creatures living in your own backyard? In I See the Sun in Botswana (Satya House, October 2020), the newest installment of the I See the Sun series, readers are introduced to Bibi, a young boy who joins his mother, a wildlife ranger, on a trip to the savannah to check on the animals living on the reserve.
Bibi learns all about African animals and their habitats, including leopards, zebras, giraffes, lions, elephants, baboons, and more.
The book also includes a glossary of terms and activities for extended learning in the home and classroom.
“Both Dedie and I have lived in other countries as well as the US. We hope that by depicting a child’s experience in a different place, we can show the essential humanity of each culture,” says Inglese. “It’s an age-appropriate introduction to life in other countries.”
“… a great concept for a book series … one that would be as at-home inside the classroom as it is in a child’s bedroom … gives young readers the opportunity to examine and reexamine the daily backdrop of real lives in faraway countries.”
