Children who love adventures with wild animals will enjoy this imaginative journey in Twin Adventures: Backyard Safari. Come and explore with twins Tate and Kate and meet the wild animals that live in rivers or nearby. The main characters take us on an imaginative trek through into their backyard filled with animals. Can you identify them? Authors Pat Henry and Andre Banks encourage children to imagine animals living there and what would their habitats look like. At the end of the story, parents and teachers could ask children “Would the animals be standing or swimming in a river, in a tree, eating leaves from a tree, or grazing?” After reading this story, children are encouraged to create their own adventure in their backyard, a local park, or take a hike. Can you imagine a monkey swinging in a tree? Could you play the part of the elephant and what would you look like?
