Description

An African Wildlife Adventure in Poems and Paintings

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.

The pictures in this book are beautiful. The book does a really good job of showing all the different animals and their purpose in the circle of life. The book does depict a lion with an animal in its mouth, so I would recommend this book for older children. I love that there is a description for the animals in the back of the book. Great animal book for kids!!

Can You Spot the Leopard?
4 Stars

This book is a collection of beautiful oil and pastel-ish animal illustrations. They're done in a rustic art style with a muted color palette. With every animal illustration, we learn fun facts or poems about each animal. I really enjoyed this book and learned something new. I'd recommend this picture book for all the animal lovers out there; it would make a great addition to anyone's library.

Thank you, NetGalley and Greenleaf Book Group, for an advance review copy for free and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

The artwork in this book was breathtaking and the poems were interesting to read. I would 100% recommend this book to people of all ages. I found that the information in the back of the book was very descriptive and helpful for younger children who may need more knowledge about specific animals. Overall, I felt like the author did a great job with this book! I find children's books difficult to rate due to length but I believe this one deserves 5 stars!

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for this ARC!

Join us for an African Safari an learn more about 🦒🦁🦓🐘🦩and more!

It’s perfect for children ages 7-9 years old, so kids in elementary school would enjoy this the most!

The illustrations are beautiful as is the writing.

It’s a book that I think is best savored bit by bit, reading a little before bedtime each night or perhaps in a classroom where a few pages can be read at a time and then we can talk about what we learned and saw on our journey. It’s engaging for kids and the back of the book tells you more about each animal which I thought was cool.

Can You Spot The Leopard ? by Karen B. Winnick is a good book to learn animal. The illustrations are beautiful along with facts about them

A day in the life of Africa, as we see all the safari animals we might possibly wish to see, in this picture book. Simple but very nicely done portraits are accompanied by verse that rhymes half the time, perhaps, but is neither too weak nor intrusive. It's just allowed to be a gentle accompaniment to the visuals, and to kind of frame it all in the structure of a day's trek. I don't think I'd have rushed to re-read it as a kid of the target range, but any teacher worth their salt could easily use this as inspiration for our own animal verses and observations. To that end, and for the visual craft, four stars seem right.

An adorable story book spinning a new tale on safari animals. The art is whimsically beautiful, and the storyline is easy enough for children to follow along to as they learn about exotic creatures.
