Description
Old Mikamba had a farm, E-I-E-I-O. And on this farm he had a giraffe, a baboon and an elephant! Caldecott Honor winner Rachel Isadora has set the classic children's song 'Old MacDonald' on the plains of Africa, where Old Mikamba watches over a variety of animals on his game farm - from roaring lions and chirping ostriches to bellowing rhinos and honking wildebeests. Providing a wonderful introduction to African wildlife, this truly unique rendition of a much loved song gives children a whole new set of fun animal sounds to try out as they enjoy the collage-style artwork.
Reviews
"While the animal sounds are fun and lend themselves perfectly to a storytime rendition, the artwork is a particular treat. Collages that give a distinct sense of place, set against plentiful white space that allows the animals to pop. . . . An extensive concluding note provides interesting facts about all of the animals included, as well as a mention of the role game farms and parks play in protecting Africa's endangered species."--Booklist
