But there are a ton of fascinating creatures which live in Africa, so we have been expanding our report topics; students who are interested in other African animals have the opportunity to do BONUS reports!
In case anyone else is doing Animals of Africa reports, I just wanted to list all of the African animals Steve Jenkins has in each book, before I return this huge stack back to the public library!
Note: Hottest, Coldest, Highest, Deepest includes facts about the Sahara Desert and Nile River.
If I have missed one of his books, please let me know in the comments box and I will check it out and update this list.
