Environmentally aware book about protecting Rhinos from poachers, written for children.
View on the App Store: iThemba - Rocksolid Systems
Features of iThemba:
Meet iThemba the rhino, as she is threatened in her natural habitat by the sounds of a poacher. She runs to her ranger friend Joe to be protected. He comes up with an idea to trick the poachers and to catch them.
He creates a pretend rhino and lays a trap for the hunters. During a night raid they catch the poachers and iThemba is safe again.
During the story your child can click on other animals on the pages to find out their names and the sounds they make.
At the end of the book there is a LOT of high quality information about White and Black Rhinos, where they live and how many there are and their conservation status is discussed in detail.
There is also a funny yet poignant rhyme created to highlight that Rhino's horns are simply made of the same material as our fingernails and to ensure that the message of saving the rhinos gets out to the world.
Created by the Wilderness Foundation's Forever Wild Rhino Protection Initiative.
I think this type of message is vital to pass onto our children and this book is a wonderful way to do that!
10 out of 10!
I usually read the books to my children but in this case I love the narrators beautiful and clear voice, it works so well with the story and the sounds are authentic to the African Bush.
Perfect for a project on Rhinos! No reading required.
