Look! An elephant eats. Look! Giraffes drink. Look! A warthog digs. A gorilla hides, wild dogs listen, zebras run, monkeys sit, hippos splash, and a rhino naps. Each line of text is illustrated by a two-page spread with a beautiful painting of an animal Ted Lewin has seen on his journeys to Africa. At the end of the story, a boy reads, plays, and dreams, surrounded by toy animals that represent each of the real ones. This book encourages children to observe, enjoy, and appreciate the natural world. Guided Reading Level D.

Each double-spread illustration shows a different African animal going about its daily life: eating, drinking, hiding, running, etc. Ted Lewin's large and colorful illustrations bring each animal to life on the printed page. The text is minimal and simply states what the animal is doing. On many of the pages only a part of the animal is in view, therefore the book would be enjoyed most by children who already have some familiarity with animals and know what the whole animal looks like.
