The reader is taken on a journey by a bird in Kenya. As the reader is led through the book he learns about the wildelife of Africa and sees it as well.

I read this book with a student and we were both intrigued by the book. As we read I would stop and ask questions about what we were reading and what could be seen in the pictures. At the end of the book, I had him retell the story and he could recall many of the aspects of the book. This is definately a book worth having in my personal library.

This book could be used as a means of incorporating reading into the science curricula. I would read this book aloud to students and discuss what they had learned about about Honey Guide's through the pictures and the text. Then I would have them pick an animal that is interesting to them and have them create their own picture books to present to the class. The pictures could be drawn, cut out of magazines, or printed off of the internet as long as they wrote text to describe the pictures. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618070311, Paperback)

There is an East African bird that loves honeycombs but sometimes cannot reach them. So the honey guide calls to a person or a honey badger and leads them to a bee nest. The writer's powerful voice takes readers on a journey through beautifully and evocatively painted African landscapes. Carrying a burning stick (its smoke will subdue the angry bees), we move cautiously past a herd of elephants, a hidden snake, a sleeping lion, and hungry crocodiles - until, at last, we and the bird reach the honey. A remarkable relationship between people in East Africa and a species of bird is the basis of this compelling picture book.
