Dive into the wonders of the African Savannah with our current Montessori box, specially designed to bring the thrill of safari animals right into your home! To complement the exciting activities in the box, we have a selection of Montessori-friendly books that are perfect for young explorers.
While a real-life safari might not be on the cards just yet, these books offer a wonderful opportunity to learn about the majestic lions, towering elephants, and graceful giraffes of the Savannah. They're ideal for sparking curiosity before a zoo visit, or simply for enjoying a journey through the wild from the comfort of your home. So, let's embark on this educational adventure together and discover the animal kingdom of the African Savannah!
Savannah books for toddlers and preschoolers
- The little book of Safari animal sounds: we have other in this collection. While having your child pushing on the buttons can be annoying, the sounds are also realistic.
- Little world: on Safari: a push-and-pull. A cute and interactive introduction to the Savannah animals.
- Dear Zoo (not about the wild Savannah but it's a great rhyming book to introduce some wild animals to your toddler)
- The Ugly five: this book by Julia Donaldson is one of our favourites at home! We team with the ugly five! And some of them are part of the box (in our set of Montessori 3-part cards of Savannah animals). Check these other Montessori friendly books by Julia Donaldson.
- Little Lion finger puppet book (also elephant, giraffe, ...): I love puppets for toddlers!
- That's not my lion and there are elephant, giraffe and others!
- Make and Play: Safari: I love the concept of this one! It's an activity book with 20 safari animal press-out pieces to make your own animals. It contains recipes, play ideas and more around the topic.
