5 stars
I love the vibrant splashes of colour and the illustrations are lovely. This is a really appealing book and LJ loves it. The only thing i'm not sure about is the back page - the 'facts' on there seem to be aimed at children of a much older age than the book itself. However, that doesn't detract from the book which has a solid feel to it and draws you in with its lovely illustrations

We absolutely love this book. Perfect compinations  of animal illustrations and simple sentences.
Rhymic sentences are fun to read and my daughter loves repeating those words. She loves looking at the safari animal pictures . 
They are wonderfully illustrated with exotic touch. You can feel yourself in the safari when you look at those cute pictures. There is some educational facts about Lions, Giraffes,Zebras and Hippopotamus on the last page of the book which is very informative and interesting.
A fantastic board book for any animal lovers.

What a beautiful book!  The illustrations are simple, yet eye catching and bold and my daughter has thoroughly enjoyed going through and learning the names of the different animals!  Makes such a change from the usual farmyard animal books, and we both loved it.

My daughter loved looking through this book and I loved all the little animal facts. My daughter loves making the sounds the animals make so the pictures in this book were perfect. She hasn't come across many hippos before so she really enjoyed seeing these for the first time, and of course the giraffes as these are her favourites!

I read it to D's little reads aged 4 aged 4
Mibo: The Safari Set BB 9781908985835
5 stars
This books is bright, cheerful and full of beautiful illustrations which D loved looking at. The book uses clear font which means D can try to recognise the words he knows and associate them with the animals if they are descriptive. This book is fantastic for children both of his age and also below. 
The book got him talking about the animals. the sounds they make, their habitats and some unique features. He enjoyed the story and it made for some lovely time spent together. I can see this book being a big hit for many, many months to come and maybe even further!

This is a lovely book with really bright and engaging illustrations. We loved reading the book and finding out the different characteristics of different animals and how they behave. I would definitely recommend this book to younger children too as I think the colours and pictures would be good for sensory development.

This lovely rhyming board book introduces young readers to five different safari animals: lions, giraffes, elephants, zebras and hippos. For the most part, there is a only a single line of text per double page and so it's incredible just how many fascinating facts are packed into the book! The Safari Set is pitched at just the right level and is a brilliant introduction to children's non-fiction. In the inside back cover there's extra information about the animals along with an environmental message about climate change.

The book will really engage young readers - the pages are colourful, the animals cute and cartoon-like, and the sturdy pages with rounded edges are perfect for tiny hands. At different points in the book the reader is addressed directly and this will help them to connect even more with the text.

The book is beautiful to look at - bold and eye-catching. I really like the stylised, design-led illustrations and the use of patterns, in particular.

There's some fabulously ambitious vocabulary for this age range, for example, 'scorching hot', 'dazzling sight', and 'dusty plains'. This, combined with the jaunty rhymes, makes it a treat to read aloud.

There are a number of other books in the series, including The Polar Pack and The Jungle Crew. We'd love to collect them all!

I read it to Nursery 2 aged 1 to 3

4 stars
I read this book to the 1 and 2 year old children I work with. They are at the ideal age for it. They enjoyed looking at the pictures and identifying the animals. They rhyming text and page turns are a nice way to keep interest while providing facts about the animals. I will admit there was some information I didn't know! The last page, which gives additional information, is a bit old for them as a group. However, I could see this being a good option with individual children who are really interested in safari animals. It's a nice nonfiction book for the youngest listeners, and I think it would be a nice early reader.
