Wild and exotic animals trample through the pages of Graeme Base’s The Waterhole. Only one thing keeps the inevitable chaos under control: the local waterhole.
The Waterhole gives us a front-row seat on an expedition to ten ecosystems and an exploration of the animals that call these beautiful places home.
Pandas, tortoises, herds of moose, and so much more are just barely contained within the pages of this book.
In this magnificent work of art, brilliant author and artist Graeme Base creates a masterpiece that is, all at once, a simple counting book, a crash course in water cycles, an advanced version of “I Spy,” and an interactive storybook. This book is wild!
The author has taken some creative liberties with the dialogue, so your little ones will love the conversations that take place around this jungle watering hole. They may even want to join the chatter!
But beyond the animal dialogue, every page has underlying mysteries to discover.
Can you find the hidden lion in the African plain below? What about the chimpanzee and the leopard?
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you’ll find that there’s even more to explore in this amazing book.
