About Can You Spot the Leopard? An African Safari
Can You Spot the Leopard? An African Safari is author/artist Karen B. Winnick’s newest picture book, an adventuresome African safari presented through poems and full-color paintings. Readers begin at sunrise, climbing into a jeep for a bumpy ride to view the wondrous animals as they would on a real safari.
All the poems are based on real observations of what animals do in the wild, related in an accessible way. There’s even a sighting, finally, of the elusive leopard, before returning to camp under a starry night.

A fun, informational, educational adventure to read and reread, the book is now available through independent bookstores everywhere and can also be ordered directly online at IndieBound, Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble, and Porchlight.
