Traveling Bear and the Drive-Through Safari is first in a series of fourteen "Traveling Bear" picturebooks with accompanying read-along audio CDs, created to teach young readers positive values and build up their reading skills through challenging vocabulary words and reading comprehension. In Traveling Bear and the Drive-Through Safari, the young bear goes on a safari in Australia, sees a kangaroo, and learns that he can discover all sorts of amazing things about kangaroos and other animals by reading books about them. "'You found the answers on your own,' Sheldon said. 'Now that's what learning is all about!' Traveling Bear shouted, "Hip-hip hooray! Learning on my own just made my day!'" Colorful, cartoon-style illustrations enhance this wonderful book for parents and children to share, and a shining first installment to a top-quality edutainment series. Highly recommended.
