Run for Your Life!: Predators and Prey on the African Savanna by Lola Schaefer

“It’s a real-life game of hide-and-seek.”

The Savannah animals are sleeping under the big night sky as this day-in-the-life story begins and ends. In between, each two-page spread shows and names a specific African predator and its prey as they run in pursuit and in fear. The watercolors are engaging, the animals a bit cartoonish with hungry and/or fearful eyes. The simple text builds and maintains a sense of excitement with distinct action verbs; the animals don’t run but spring, bound, swoop, hop, lunge, and trot.

Readers from 4 to 94 will enjoy this quick read, either as a lap-sit or shared with a group, Older kids and adults will appreciate the detailed back matter, a brief explanation of camouflage and speed and a list of the animals and their average sprint speeds. (Note: the real-life gore, killing and flesh consumption is only implied, not depicted nor discussed.)
